Firkin Crane Theatre, Cork: lewis Major Projects: Satori / unfolding

“This is an exquisite work, a perfect fusion of design, light and movement.” – Maggie Tonkin, Dance Australia

In advance of their Galway International Arts Festival premiere on July 19, Lewis Major Projects performs two previews of his double-bill; Satori and Unfolding.

Satori, loosely translatable from Japanese as the term for awakening, envisions a world of impermanence and shifting atmospheres amongst different patterns of sound, light, and movement while Unfolding melds fluid dance with shifting 3D animations by creative coder Fausto Brusamolino.

Lewis Major’s Satori is an intense, enthralling work… That the program was present in the Space at the Festival Centre is an important reminder that these works merit their place in the big league." – Peter Burdon, The Advertiser
