Duration: 30 minutes.

Falling Slowly is a multimedia performance with live music inspired by a slow and epic descent down a mountain in the dark, with a single light to guide the way. The work plays with metaphors for how we make our way through life, through plans and patterns, often with not much guidance — but we do find our way. However, memory sits in our very bones and certain moments, often borne of pain, fear and excitement, act as catalysts for change. These moments contain a multiplicity of sensations, felt through body, movement, trauma and gravity.

This site-specific performance will be shown outside in an industrial corner of Wellington and Rue Ann in Griffintown for a small audience. 30 people can safely watch the performance at 2 meters distance from each other. The work will continually loop, running the show for 2 hrs having an audience to enter and exit every 20 minutes allowing an audience capacity of 180 spectators.
