A sinkhole has opened in the ground. This is the story of a woman who climbs into it. And what she finds.
In a 70 minute fever dream told by Alison Whyte (Cloudstreet, The Bloody Chamber), a woman and her guide journey into a chasm that has opened in a city and stolen her sister. As they plunge into the subterranean depths; and on the knife’s edge of panic, the woman refuses the urgent pleas of her guide to turn back—how can she when she knows her sister is so close?
But they are not alone.
In this adrenaline filled collaboration with Stephanie Lake Company, Alison Whyte is joined on stage by dancers Samantha Hines, Josie Weise, and Kimball Wong, who conjure the hallucinations and horrors that echo in the dark below the earth.
