A performer, a jackhammer and a pile of rocks attempt to crack the earth wide open and enter the void. Let's find something new together.

TERRAPOLIS is a new performance work that escapes fixed definitions; creating and recreating worlds in which we encounter organic and inorganic organisms, speculative fantasy and science fiction. TERRAPOLIS decentres both linear time and human certainty and creates some sweet drum and bass from a pile of rocks.

Created by a team of award-winning creatives: performer Julia Croft, featuring live sound design by Jason Wright, performance design by Meg Rollandi and direction by Nisha Madhan

Created with support from:

Creative New Zealand
Battersea Arts Centre
