An immersive sensory narrative spatially woven of architecture, performance and installation.
The cinematic passage of people with disjointed snippets in foreign tongues reveals an unlikely collision of seasons and cultures in one place at one time. Tired of waiting, the mind starts to drift into a surreal dream world where reality and fantasy blur and . . . suddenly anything is possible. Passports get mixed up, nationalities discarded, identities become transient . . .

In Transit

Created for first ever Future Cinema event (now Secret Cinema)

1 November 2005

A site-specific performance installation inspired by dream states triggered by the collision of impossible images encountered in an international airport lounge.

The piece was created for the first ever Future Cinema (now Secret Cinema) event, designed around a main screening of experimental surrealist film “Dreams That Money Can Buy”. It was one of many theatrical actions accompanying short film screenings and musical bands at the event, which had a curated theme of “surreal burlesque”. The event was attended by over 1,000 people.
