Adelaide Fringe

Prepare Your Ears And Eyes For MICROmacro

South Australia’s Zephyr Quartet will team up with the excitingly unpredictable visual/performance artist Jo Kerlogue to present MICROmacro – a new music and live improvised visual art performance, guaranteed to elicit a powerful emotional response from audiences when it's presented at the Wheatsheaf Hotel on February 25 – 29 and March 1 – 2 as part of the Adelaide Fringe 2012.
 
A site-specific three-way conversation between sound, vision and space – MICROmacro is an organic collision of the unexpected and surreal, the beautiful and absurd. In a world where the refined, absolute and ordered are at the forefront of our existence, it offers a glimpse into the evolving, organic nature of life with a show that is utterly unique every time it’s performed.
 
Audiences will be taken on an extraordinary and intimate 50 minute journey with the artists as they craft a universe where worlds are created, destroyed and then resolved into yet another entity entirely.
 
Zephyr Quartet and Jo Kerlogue share a rich performance history, dating back to 2009.
 
“Jo is one of Australia’s most original creators and performers – and we’re honoured to be working with her again,” said Hilary Kleinig, Zephyr Quartet’s artistic director & cellist. “The music and visual art we’ve written & designed for this latest collaboration interact closely with each other to form a very powerful narrative.”
 
MICROmacro will be presented in Adelaide after a short season at Perth's 2012 Fringe Festival.
 
Within the performance itself – paint drips symbiotically with the music; the scratch and squeak of charcoal fuses effortlessly with strings; cut and collaged elements of music and imagery form a completely analogue performance which is dirty, organic, darkly beautiful and catastrophic.
 
“MICROmacro is a space within a space, a white installation in the void – and from the void is created the history of everything ever,” said Jo Kerlogue. “The primordial soup of sound and vision we create is designed to provoke a reaction and the audience experience will be one of collective individualism.”
