Alien Abduction is a captivating performance installation set to take place with a backdrop of the Wellington Harbour and the night sky. A body, a form, a human, pulled from earth & up into the unknown. An enthralling journey of surrender.

Set in the 1940’s, around the time of the first documented UFO sightings and abduction reports. This piece was originally created for HighLight Festival in 2019, it is a 15 minute performance which will repeat perpetually throughout the evening.

In studio, the physical elements were crafted in collaboration with an aerialist and dancer to combine the expressions. Devising the physicality, intention and gravity illusion.
