Under the direction of joint artistic directors Rachel Champion and Tristan Shorr, Art Of Disappearing link choreography to sound, fine art and theatre to create a visual and audio aesthetic that encourages interactive responses between audience members and allows them to become the active designers of their own exploration.

The Lost Room, created in 2013-15 is an immersive dance and theatre experience for two people featuring a beautifully intricate purpose built room. As they enter, the Victorian panelled study reveals a detailed interactive set in which the two participants create their own story-making experience, aided by an audio guide transmitted via headphones.  The work encouarges collaborative and individual exploration, generating both a shared and personal experience. The work is ideal for two strangers, a parent and child, or two friends.  Art of Disappearing’s second work is The Stand In, a wry look at the role and physicality of the performer.  Taking two willing audience members at a time, the work shifts the balance between performer and audience, asking participants to become the watched.   Using an audio guide, a script and props, they enact a series of scenes, interpreting together a unique performance of their own.Both pieces provide unique experiences for participants which festival-goers and arts audiences of all kinds will enjoy.
