Dark Points is an immersion into simultaneous evolving threads bound to sound, movement and light. Ten dancers will intersect with the space as the sonic landscape evolves around them. Tape loops and textural drones, performed live each night, bring an element of indeterminacy to the performance as the choreography and sound respond to one another in real time. Prepare for the decay and disintegration of the environment around you.

Dark Points is the premier production of new experimental performance company Die Angle.

Produced by Tom Backhaus and hosting an outstanding team of emerging artists and collaborators, the project provides a unique opportunity for unconventional interdisciplinary collaboration.

Thalia Livingstone draws upon her experience in the field of architecture to redefine space and structure through movement and bodies. Film composer Mitchell Mackintosh’s cinematic, textural sound worlds ebb and flow with evolving bodies as the space expands and contracts.

Imbued with John Collopy’s ethereal lighting design and bespoke costume by Aislinn Naughton, the fleeting world of dark points exists only as an ephemeral moment, an intersection of creative urges precipitated into three performances.

The funds raised through this campaign will be put towards venue, costume and production costs. The venue for Dark Points is essential to the atmospheric vision of our show. This specificity required as a location has raised costs, however we are beyond excited to have the Mycelium Studios basement as our show venue. Hiring Mycelium is by far the largest production expense.

Our costume designer has undertaken the bold task of designing and sewing costumes for 10 dancers. Funding will also go toward the hire of lighting equipment. Presented in September 2019 at Mycelium Studios, we will offer you Dark Points for three nights. Alongside the live performance, DIE ANGLE will use the material to produce a dance film in a further iteration of this collaboration.

We are Mitch and Thalia, aka DIE ANGLE.

Mitchell Mackintosh is a composer and sound designer currently completing an undergraduate degree in Interactive Composition at the VCA. Collaborating across multiple mediums, he pursues meaning and narrative through deeply rhythmic, textural landscapes. Mitchell’s work as a media composer includes ‘Miss Aries’ as part of the ‘Calendar Girls’ short film series (2017), original sound design for Pia Interlandi’s ‘Little Black Death Dress’, ‘Mestiza’ (Ranima Montez, MIFF 2018), ‘Packing Pearl’ (Hiball), ‘A Nice Place To Stop’ (Hiball, 2019) and ‘This Is My Heaven’ (Rhys Jones, Luna Laure).

Thalia Livingstone is a choreographer and performer with a background in architectural design. She has worked with choreographers such as Sue Healey, Danielle Michich, Stephanie Lake and Prue Lang and performed at venues such at The Sydney Opera House and Arts Centre Melbourne. Thalia’s interests lie in the reframing of one’s perception of space and expanding people’s impression of possibilities within a space. She interrogates why we have decided to occupy space in particular ways through defining it in relation to the body.
