Children under 12 must accompanied by an adult. The works require a high level of physical mobility and personal responsibility and is not accessible to wheelchair users.
Push your way into the experiential extreme of an ‘impossible space’ – where physical pressure, light and sound combine to create a surreal accumulation of sensations.
Creators Denis Beaubois, William McClure and Jeff Stein were members of Sydney’s Gravity Feed Ensemble – an architectural performance-theatre which employed large sets to create potent, subversive and densely atmospheric events. Impasse is a tangible rendering and intensification of space, where space becomes substance, restricting both the visitor’s field of vision and their capacity to move.
Impasse creates a unique experience of ‘space’ as you struggle to carve out a path with your body. Its unique fusion of physical impression and surprising sounds makes for an extraordinary, densely- packed journey that will change the way you see, feel and hear the world!
