Reality has always been augmented – by the limits of our human perception. A New Work Now commission, Sky Blue Mythic, expands upon choreographer and dancer Angela Goh’s 2020 Keir Choreographic Award-winning work of the same name.

Sky Blue Mythic stands at a threshold of cascading horizons. An avatar is adrift in an unknowable but familiar setting, where worlds loom, times loop, gestures distil and meanings distort.

An interface of flesh searching for new ways of being, Sky Blue Mythic sees the body alienated, and the alien embodied. An ethereal thriller that highlights the presence and absence between worlds, Sky Blue Mythic is a recalibration of the ways we know dance, the body, and time. Sky Blue Mythic is performed solo with live sound composition by Melbourne artist Corin Ileto.
