Axeman Lullaby recreates a sense of Australian cinematic landscapes. In the 1970's Australian cinema produced a flood of films that captured a raw and experimental identity about suburban and indigenous myth. These films offered a surreal and eerie portrayal about our past and unsettled future.
The disquiet doesn't stop until the final pendulum swing of the axe. Axeman Lullaby is a hypnotic state, shattered.
"A frenzy of interwoven movement ensues, with heads and limbs tracing spirals atop complex footwork in trademark BalletLab style" - The Age
"Adams is a profound exploiter of melodrama, walking a narrow edge between naive passion and stylised sophistication" - Theatre Notes
