Sci-fi dance phenomenon FUTURE CARGO to premiere in Adelaide

by | Dec 8, 2023

FUTURE CARGO, the critically acclaimed sci-fi dance phenomenon, will make its Australian premiere at Adelaide Fringe in 2024.

Created by David Rosenberg, best known for the immersive shipping container series Darkfield, and Frauke Requardt, one of the UK’s most inventive choreographers, FUTURE CARGO combines the spectacle of large scale dance performances and the delicate integrity and intimacy of the audience experience through binaural sound.

Timed with twilight at Adelaide Fringe, audiences sit under the stars wearing headphones observing a mystery shipment from an unknown location. There are reports of power surges and electromagnetic waves in the area.

​As the side rolls up on a 40ft haulage truck, an enigmatic machine will be revealed, and a strange and unstoppable process begins. A compelling invitation to make contact evolves and a seduction occurs between a human and an other-worldly force.

FUTURE CARGO is an homage to a past and a future where contact seems all too possible.

Produced in Australia by Realscape Productions, the local team that brought you Darkfield, the show promises to introduce a unique format of contemporary dance to Australian audiences.

FUTURE CARGO will play at Adelaide Fringe Festival 2024 from 16 February to 17 March 2024, at the Garden of Unearthly Delights.,
