Inspired by excerpts from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s ‘Notes from Underground’, Sediment is an abstract expedition through the layers of human desires and motives. A look at what lies beneath, at what really drives us, in the search for truth. A reflection on the quirky, comical and sometimes dark nature of the human disposition to always question. To push, to pull, to strive, to fall; and to push again.
Extending the limits of physicality, attempting the impossible, looking beyond the edge. This is a chance to see circus redefining itself.
Breathtaking acrobatic skill, feats of physical impossibility, in a fusion of movement and live music. Set to an original score featuring a typewriter, glass bottles, sand and other interesting and unusual instruments. Sediment is Company 2's most innovative theatrical venture, reimagined especially for Melbourne fringe 2016
