SUPERTONE premiered in 2012 in the Next Wave festival in Melbourne.

 

SUPERTONE is an embodiment of imagined virtual realities. It is a hyper saturation of tonality between colour, body and sound. Five performers reclaim the performance space by physically manifesting imagined environments based in sensory deception, from the Wizard of Oz to pornography, overloading their physical information to the point of mania.
