Crossing Mountains & Seas

by Orchid Enseble and Aeriosa

July 11th, 2019 | The Port Theatre | 7:30 PM


Crossing Mountains & Seas blends the sense of breath in Asian traditions with the abstraction in contemporary art forms; fusing aerial dance, contemporary dance, cross-cultural music, and interactive multimedia projection. Setting the story within an online role-playing game, the characters travel between the ancient and modern worlds, the east and the west, and the reality and our imagination.

Flicker is a wise and dreamlike tale that highlights the diversity and complexity of contemporary Indigenous identities. Flicker tells the story of a young man who sets out on a hero's quest to find his true potential. Through rituals, beings with supernatural powers guide the young man on a journey of discovery that changes him forever.
