‘Inside Out’

Come explore a building that Gold Coasters rarely get to see.  Built from ‘the inside out’, the world-class designed Abedian School of Architecture celebrates the raw and visceral.

Inside Out is a compelling new site-specific dance work by Tammy Zarb, where audiences travel sloping pathways, discover intimate rooms with bold colour, spiral stairwells and soaring expanses of concrete.  Glimpse highly skilled dancers from different perspectives in this bold choreographic encounter with site, enhanced by an immersive soundscape.

Inside Out is a powerful meditation on time and space and how dance and architecture sublimely stretch the boundaries of both.
