Putting two and two together

Metadata is a riveting performance from the De Quincey Company that aims to explore the cosmic nature of physics and mathematics, through dance, sound, and light.

Featuring two pieces, Pure Light and Maths & Mathematics, this captivating production aims to take the audience into another dimension, an intimate world where the boundary between possible and impossible is erased.

As choreographer Peter Fraser explains, "We are already being danced by nature in our heartbeat, our breath and the pattern of our walking. Our molecules move us according to physics we don't necessarily understand but feel in harmony with. Tess and I wanted to make performances that are informed by the underlying physical and mathematical patterns that already determine and shape our lives and possibilities."

After the performance, guests are invited to take part in an ideas exchange, where they can discuss the different meanings and interpretations of the performance with the cast and crew.

While the performance is fascinating, as it deals with complex concepts, I would only recommend it for adults, or for anyone with an interest in mathematics and science, as some of the symbolism may be lost on kids. Metadata is currently screening at the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta. Tickets are $25 for students, and $35 for adults.
