In light of the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place for South Australia, all Illuminate Adelaide events (free and ticketed) will be paused while we await further advice from SA Health.

Unfortunately this means Utter: Stories Told by a Ghost, a Book and a Room is cancelled.

Ticket holders will be contacted shortly. We appreciate your patience while our team navigates this ever-changing situation.

💚 Team Illuminate Adelaide

Utter: Stories Told by a Ghost, a Book and a Room marries technology, contemporary dance and new music to progress the legacy of Philippa Cullen, an Australian pioneering dancer whose set of pressure sensitive floors reimagined the relationship between movement and sound. Using bespoke interactive electronic instruments, this performance draws new outlines for our relationship between sound, movement and light, continuing the work of Cullen whose prolific design and performance career was cut short by an untimely death at the age of 25. Bringing together movement, sound, and light, this performance asks unexpected questions about these intricate artistic relationships.

Presented by Nexus Arts.
