Conceived by Maxine Doyle & Es Devlin
1 – 24 September 2023 | Northshore, Brisbane
Two artistic visionaries, Maxine Doyle and Es Devlin, combine forces for an epic new work.
A promenade dance-theatre work, Salamander sees a warehouse at Northshore Brisbane transformed into a fully immersive, climate-fiction dream-like world through light, sound, design, and movement.
Es Devlin’s world-renowned labyrinthian, kinetic sculptures live within a flooded landscape inhabited by characters desperate to make a change before it’s too late.
Maxine Doyle – together with a dynamic ensemble of international, national and local dancers, including Brisbane’s Australasian Dance Collective, with extraordinary Australian composer and singer Rachael Dease – brings this world to life with visceral dance and haunting melodies.
With lighting by Ben Hughes and costumes by Bruce McKinven, Salamander is a transformative performance experience set in an epic installation created by the legendary Es Devlin.
