About this event

A new Adelaide dance work based on Superstition and Old Wives Tales; reflecting a time of tradition and rituals, stories to live life by, to make sense of the world and make meaning from events in ones' life. An attempt to fathom the unfathomable, based on neither reason nor fact; sometimes it disregards reason altogether.

Each individual has their own routines and rituals they use to get through life; coping mechanisms to get through the ever-changing world.

This is a standing event, chairs provided if required.
