One Fell Swoop Circus and Gasworks Arts Park present the premiere season of

Sensory Decadence

The experiencing self lives each moment. The remembering self constructs the story afterwards.

Human beings are naturally inclined to value remembering over experiencing. But what would happen if the Experiencing Self were triumphant? In a vibrant celebration of sensation, five circus artists pursue the ecstatic, immediate completeness of experience, through exhilarating and contemporary circus.

This Winter One Fell Swoop Circus present the premiere season of Sensory Decadence by bringing their trademark skill set and style to bear on what Nobel Prize winning economist Daniel Kahneman calls the two selves; the Experiencing Self (that lives each moment) and the Remembering Self (that constructs the story afterwards). Drawing on influences spanning from ASMR to the surrealist world of readymades, Sensory Decadence invites Melbourne audiences to explore a unique alternative world.

Melbourne-based and garnering rave reviews for previous works; By a Thread, Kilter and Mitsein, One Fell Swoop invites audiences to viscerally experience the balance of joy and risk inherent to group acrobatic performance, creating powerful works on the cutting edge of contemporary circus practice.

One Fell Swoop Circus is proud to be the 2019 company-in-residence at Gasworks Arts Park. Sensory Decadence is proudly supported by the City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund, the Gasworks Foundation Patrons Fund, the Saunders Circus Grant, and the Friends Of One Fell Swoop (FOOFS).
