THE SEEN AND UNSEEN ★★★★
Martyn Myer Arena, Victorian College of the Arts until February 29
This show, billed as dance and physical storytelling, was performance with the lot. It included lively children and animal characters, ghosts, airborne angels, singing, jokes, maternal and fraternal love, death, grief and more, in the tradition of epic performance sagas.
The Australian-Indonesian-Japanese collaboration explored the Balinese philosophy of sekala niskala (the seen and unseen), a perspective that embraces the dualism of all life, good and bad, happy and sad, life and death.
