PUZZLECREATURE is an intimate 60-minute installation performance inspired by artist/architect duo Arakawa and Madeline Gins (Reversible Destiny Foundation). The performance combines dance, immersive set design and a surround sound score that enables the audience to question attitudes to ageing and the body.

Audiences occupy the same space as performers as the theatre is transformed to affect body perception. Three exquisite dance artists drive the performance with wearable body sculptures from award winning Ana Rajcevic creating curious imprints of choreographed action.

Please note: For this performance the theatre will be a no-shoe environment so audiences will be politely asked to remove their shoes before they enter the space.
