Seven visual haiku in a dark void. A light, sound and body installation. 

Returning to Dunedin after a sell-out Wellington season, afterburner’s Dark Matter is a unique experience of light, designed by award winning lighting designer Martyn Roberts. 

The mysterious images in Dark Matter are on the edge of visibility where the imagination creates sights that could not possibly be true....or are they? The trick of the eye will feed the mind with inner phantasms and wraiths stirring in the darkness. The light will fascinate and enchant as it becomes a solid form in front of your eyes, only to vanish from whence it came.

Winner of Best of Fringe 2017 at the New Zealand Fringe (Wellington). 

The dancers in Dark Matter are Leah Carrell and Megan Wilson.

Martyn Roberts is without a doubt New Zealand’s master of painting darkness over darkness, of sculpting the darkness as if it were a thing of immense solidity and form.
