South Australia is known for its incredible arts scene, and our city’s newest arts venue is planning something that is really going to push the boundaries of live performance.
South Australia’s newest multi-genre immersive performance space, The Lab, will this month host a 24-hour program of continuous live music presented by multi-instrumentalist Adam Page.
In a SA exclusive performance on Thursday, 29 April at 7pm, Adam will dissect the one thing that remains constant and unwavering in life: time.
For Adam Page, the 24-hour show will uncover new territory as a performer and provide an important artistic statement for this era of time.
“I really want to create a show that reflects these times. With so much going on in our daily lives I am creating an experience with The Lab that will challenge and excite audiences,” Adam explains.
“The aim is to take audiences through the cycle of a day in our lives. The music is still evolving, but each hour will reflect a different moment, experience and emotion.”
For Light’s Artistic Director Anne Wiberg, Adam’s show is a rare opportunity for audiences to be part of a special moment in South Australian music history.
“Events like this are incredibly rare. We are excited to be able to work with Adam to create this experience. This work is symbolic of everything that The Lab represents,” she says.
“We want to be known for new works and experiences that are experimental and open the creative mind to
what is possible.”
For this performance, audiences are invited to experience Adam Page’s show in either small blocks, or for the eager time traveller, the entire 24 hours.
The concert will be recorded for future release through Wizard Tone Records.
Since its opening in February, The Lab has played host to 50 shows, with 48 of them showcasing SA talent.
With a vision for supporting local emerging artists from music, theatre, visual and digital arts, The Lab is already attracting attention from audiences and artists alike.
The Lab sits as part of the new not-for-profit cultural hub, Light Adelaide.
Setting a bold new direction for the arts and hospitality in South Australia, Light also features a world class restaurant Aurora, café Little Mission and new alfresco destination, Beags.
