Come Away

COME AWAY WITH ME TO THE END OF THE WORLD

A collaboration with Melbourne visual artist Callum Morton

COME AWAY WITH ME TO THE END OF THE WORLD is a meditation on life and death between three performers who have been working together for over twenty years. We watch as they shape and reshape themselves confronting the space between their actual lives and their dreamed selves. Designed by visual artist Callum Morton, COME AWAY WITH ME TO THE END OF THE WORLD asks questions about how we live, how we want to live, about change and the desire for it as we gently brush up against our own mortality.
