Description In Mortal Engine, the limits of the human body are an illusion. Emanating from within, crackling light and staining shadows represent the most perfect or sinister of souls. Drawing on the kinetics of the interior, enveloping lasers and movement responsive video projections paint an ever-shifting shimmering world. Within this visually spinning, humming and oozing environment , dancers fluidly exchange and combine form with light around them in a constant state of becoming. Witnessing moments of exquisite cosmological perfection, or grotesque evolutionary accidents of existence, we are ceaseles
