PERMUTATIONS | BRISBANE POWERHOUSE

16th – 19th of MAR

Why watch a film from one point of view when you can watch it from four! Permutations is an immersive experience that allows the viewer to chose from four different screens to watch a dance film that centres around two sisters in 1982 who are left home alone while their mother and her new husband go on their honeymoon. However, the trip goes longer than expected… The viewer can choose from the four screens so that they get alternate perspectives of the story.
