Chunky Move choreographer and director Gideon Obarzanek is returning to this year’s Sydney Festival.

Following the success of Glow, Obarzanek continues his remarkable investigation into the visually stunning possibilities realised by new technologies.

Mortal Engine is a new dance-video-laser performance using movement-responsive video projections to portray an ever-shifting, shimmering world in which the limits of the human body are an illusion.

Crackling light and staining shadows represent the most perfect and the most sinister souls.

Veering wildly between moments of exquisite cosmological perfection and grotesque evolutionary accidents of existence, we are driven forward by the reality of permanent change.

Mortal Engine plays at the Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House, from 16 January. Tickets are $25 from www.sydneyfestival.org.au.
