Lucy Who productions this week presented “Underwhere” in a sell out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival! Supported by funding from Arts Tasmania, the show featured at the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) – a meeting ground for Australian and International producers and festival makers.
The performance features incredibly beautiful surreal visual imagery and an electro-acoustic score composed by Matthew Dewey, consisting of street sounds that merge with recorded and abstract musical samples.
