On a distant planet lie the remains of an impact crater, steeped in eerie sounds and frosty light. The crater’s walls have eroded and its utter whiteness obscures its dimensions. Within it, tiny, bizarre figures, like microbes under the searching eye of a microscope, live out a curious, hostile drama that seems to have begun billions of years earlier.

Marzo, the latest piece by strikingly original Italian company Dewey Dell, takes its name from the month of March, which since ancient times has always been the month of war. A brilliantly aberrant Gesamtkunstwerk of light, sound, choreography, costume and text, Marzo exudes the perfectly calculated mystery that electrified Melbourne audiences at
Arts House during Next Wave 2012 with the company’s Cinquanta Urlanti, Quaranta Ruggenti, Sessanta Stridenti and Grave.
