Phillip Adams is the Founder and Artistic Director of Philip Adams Balletlab. Phillip Adams' career in dance and performance spans over 25 years as a vital contributor to the richness of Australian performing arts. Adams' works provide a crucial point of differentiation: an alternative modality, fearless choreographic practice and risk-taking approach to creation and presentation. Between the twitchy agitation of British New Wave, recordings of birdsong and the paradise of the New Guinea jungle, our brief for Aviary was to capture the essence of the narrative and establish a compelling, image driven campaign that captured a flamboyant dance performance of exotic birdlife and uncommon adornment.

A work for the caged bird, Aviary builds links between Messiaen's colourful exploration of birdsong and music, choreography and staging to produce an experimental interpretation of his scores.

Our brief was to capture the essence of the narrative and establish a compelling, image driven campaign that created a vision that was at once brutal and sublime.
