Phillip Adams BalletLab

World Premiere

Fri 06—Sat 21 Oct

Temperance Hall


One of Australia’s most audacious dance luminaries returns with an immersive experience unlike any other.

EVER presents two iconic 20th century chamber music works—John Adams’ Shaker Loops and Richard Strauss’ Metamorphosen —in an exhilarating choreographic and visually cinematic feast.

Six extraordinary dancers create an everlasting cycle of loops and oscillating ecstatic rhythms, investigating themes of permutation, transformation and the infinite.

EVER is a painterly expression of vibrant minimalism and chromatic Romanticism morphing Shaker and Quaker roots and nostalgic tropes of the American West. Fashion icon Akira Isogawa and lighting designer Matthew Adey collaborate with Adams on this sublimely modernist interpretation which glides across the music.
