Presented by Perth Festival

Subterranean landscapes unfold and erupt as six dancers invite you on an epic descent into the epicentre of the earth, prompting contemplation of the power, fragility and impermanence of nature and our inevitable slide from the physical world.

From the darkness of the theatre, subterranean landscapes unfold and erupt as six dancers invite you on an epic descent deep into the epicentre of the earth. And The Earth Will Swallow Them Whole examines rituals around death, burial and honouring the body, in an immersive funeral rite contemplating the overwhelming power, fragility and impermanence of nature, and our inevitable slide from the physical world.

Featuring a radical new score for piano and electronica, performed live, and set within an exquisite enveloping visual design, And The Earth Will Swallow Them Whole is a poetic and compelling new dance work of seismic proportion created by a team of leading Australian performance artists.
