- Get involved
Ado is a celebrated young man with talent and choice who, according to his family and friends, is at the pinnacle of his potential. So what’s happened and where has he gone?
Charge your mobile, friend Ado on Facebook and travel on a bus to visit places where he lives and plays, interacting with him along the way. Will you get to meet and intercept him or will he continually stay just out of reach?
The real world of a country town is dubbed, daubed and overlaid with the symbols, images and memes that give you, the audience, clues to Ado, his life, associations and inner most thoughts. "Black" is steeped in ambiguity and fluidity of time delivering you information from the past, present and future. Operatic in scale and emotion this new immersive semi-site specific performance installation work is imaginatively visceral and wholly affecting.
