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. Miracle takes up contemporary concerns about religious radicalism and uses revolutionary evangelist groups from the 1960s and 70s to explore the dynamics of group behaviour, rapture and the desire to achieve an alternate, transcendent state of being through religion. Our brief was to capture the essence of the narrative and establish a compelling, image driven campaign that reflected a vision that was at once brutal and sublime.

Artistic Director, Phillip Adams considered the manipulative power of Jim Jones of The People's Temple and Australia's own celebrated alternative cult/community, the Universal Brotherhood to create Miracle, in which the group experience of emotionally charged religious fervour and alienation from conventional life is played out as an experiential performance.

What transpires is an examination of the promises of a new beginning and the false hopes and religious stereotypes that these practices produce. The work builds up to a choreographic crescendo, including dissonant playing of harmonicas, and an epiphany that culminates in a phenomena – of live levitation by two dancers – The Miracle.

    And All Things Return To Nature Tomorrow

    And All Things Return To Nature Tomorrow celebrates the long-term artistic relationship between Phillip Adams and Brooke Stamp, and their common interest in hybrid forms of performance. Each artist's work sits as complementary aspects of a continuum across form and narrative. Capturing the essence of the performance, our campaign delivered a sold out season through an integrated campaign of outdoor, print, advertising and public relations.

    Aviary

    Only from the imaginings of Artistic Director Phillip Adams could this fantasia of contemporary movement and exotic birdlife set against the avian-inspired 20th Century idiom of French composer, Oliver Messiaen's Catalogue d'Oiseaux (1958) come forth. Capturing the essence of the performance, our campaign delivered a sold out season through an integrated campaign of outdoor, print, advertising and public relations.
