An immersive, auditory Antarctic experience will premiere in Melbourne.

It may be high on the bucket lists of many intrepid vacationers, but Antarctica is a destination that few travellers will observe up close – until now.

For one week from November 24, those eager to experience the frosty moods of this ice-swathed region can immerse themselves in its landscape via a unique aural experiment at Arts Centre Melbourne.

Encouraging visitors to rethink their relationships with the natural world, Polar Force is a collection of field recordings from a place where extreme wind and endless ice reigns supreme. Recordings are combined with live, industrial percussion performances, forming a captivating soundscape. Speak Percussion, a troupe known for its barrier-bending arts projects, will bring its world first to the Arts Centre’s Playhouse Rehearsal Room until December 1.
