Conjuring fantastical creatures and imagery from the dark recesses of the human mind, Unheimlich is a new performance work by director Kathryn Osborne, multidisciplinary artist Tarryn Gill and sound artist Brett Smith.

The work is an exploration of distorted human forms that build a surreal world where the subconscious mind can be explored. Humans are gradually removed from the work and a nightmarish landscape where their feelings and desires that are part of human experience can be examined and personified.

Unheimlich draws inspiration from the current popularity of animation within pop-culture - creating an environment where complex psychological and philosophical ideas can be explored. Animation as a form gives the viewer enough distance from the ‘real’ world to create space for the audience to be more deeply affected than they might otherwise have been.
