A movement-based performance installation with video art, sound art and a series of mirror-booths.  Taking phantom-limb sensation as a “body-mirage”, and inspired by the work of neurologist V. Ramachandran, Mirage plays on perceptual illusion, the construction of hybrid forms, and the real and virtual fusing and separating. It is an interactive labyrinth of perceptual illusion performed in a reflective pool amongst multi-dimensional projections. Mirage was created in the context of a fellowship awarded by The Australian Choreographic Centre to James Cunningham and Suzon Fuks. Premiered in November 2006 in Canberra.
