The music was composed by Emmy-nominated Philip Miller, and was arranged and conducted by Adam. The piece transports the audience to a realm where the cast-iron lines between art and science are unashamedly torn down and re-envisioned. Like the finely tuned cogs of a magnificent musical time machine, the piece captures that most illusive of phenomenon, the passage and pressure of time, and leaves an indelible impression on the senses.
Through a provocative combination of dance, music, imagery and mammoth steampunk-esque mechanical devices, the performance piece explores the concept of time from a vivid new perspective. The project also features hypnotic choreography by Dada Masilo, inspirational soundscapes by Gavan Eckhart and HD film projections by William Kentridge and Catherine Meyburgh.
