Presented in association with Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy

An intimate and surreal new opera, Terminal explores ideas of genetic memory, recurring dreams and the relationship between personal and collective health.

Scored for two performers with live electronics, the work follows a man who wakes to his own dream world in order to confront the Rat, a figure associated with disease but also the unfailing will to survive.

Inspired by fragments of the composers own dream diary, the opera unfolds in a series of vignettes as the man creates and becomes trapped in his own dreams. An opera without voices, this delicate world is built from subtle sonic interactions between live and pre-recorded sounds.

“Sheridan is a real talent…Terminal is a strange, abstract and stimulating piece with a stage vision as strong as its sound.” 4 stars, The Age
