Sirens of Titan
Traversing Earth, Mars, Mercury and Titan, Infundibular is a performance which spans the solar system, Drawing on Kurt Vonnegut’s ground-breaking satirical novel “Sirens of Titan”, Infundibular examines themes of freedom and control on a cosmic scale.
“There’s a unique feel to each chapter of the performance,” says co-creator Ashlee Bye. “In creating this work, we found ourselves imagining what it would be like to actually be in each of these different environments, and what that would mean for how we relate to each other and our surroundings. I have a solo set on Mercury, which draws on a scene from the book, where even my most subtle movements have a profound impact on the creatures that are living in that space. It was a really fresh way to approach creating the work.”
