Dance as a metaphor for thought. And a metaphor for nothing. This is us very very close up, watercolour smears. Gigantic, a monster. Microbes swimming in pores that are lakes. Zoom out accelerate toward the limit and then float, the sadness has no object.
Presented as a part of Critical Mass.
Warning: Contains some nudity, mild coarse language
"Aiken's work is a delight with its own personality, fully engaged with wit and visual verbal wordplay" - Liza Dezfouli, Australian Stage
"Arnott and Aiken are possibly the first team I have ever experienced who fully understand all the qualities of space. How it changes, how it undulates, how scale can shift and focus can be manipulated.
They demonstrate how our senses are engaged both consciously and unconsciously through lighting and sound. They mess with our cognisance by playing with the manipulation of projection techniques and live performance.
Set is a journey into understanding how we can be manipulated. It looks at how with the tiniest shift, everything can change." - Samsara Dunston, Planet Arts Melb
"OVERWORLD heralds a new aesthetic in high art: maximalist, freely mixing high and low references, unapologetically feminine, silly rather than stern, but thoughtful" - Jana Perkovic, RealTime
