SILENCE ! – Adelaide Fringe
Momentarily & Buxton Walker present – SILENCE !
The premiere of SILENCE ! will be a festival event unlike anything ever seen before in Australia. A spectacle of percussion, pyrotechnics and fireworks, launching Adelaide Fringe 2023.
Les Commandos Percu present a storm of sounds and fire that resonates deep, the silence before the storm. The slow muffled rolling of the drums rises from the depths becoming a deafening noise. A rain of metal fills the air, sheet lightning overwhelms the sky. Time is suspended, all is frozen.
Dressed up with metal, musicians move forward amongst a blinding light. Coloured bodies and layered pieces of metal form a moving shape with sharp angles forcing itself upon the audience. Powerful rhythms intersperse with silence creating a tension that will not fade.
