A Day in the Life of Adam Page

13.4.21

We chatted to Adam Page ahead of his headline show in The Lab. And yes.. it goes for 24 hours.

WHAT’S THE INSPIRATION BEHIND A 24 SHOW?

I really wanted to create a show that reflects these times. With so much going on in our daily lives I wanted to create an experience with The Lab that will challenge and excite audiences. I want to take audiences through the cycle of a day in our lives. The music is still evolving, but each hour will reflect a different moment, experience and emotion.

A 24-hour show is incredibly rare. I feel that I am ready to create an experience that is truly a work of art and statement for these modern times.


WHAT CAN AUDIENCES EXPECT?

The show is open to interpretation and I feel everyone’s experience will be unique based on mindset and how they choose to experience the performance. Much of the show will be improvised so the performance is impossible to predict.

Whether people stay 3-, 12- or 24-hours audiences can expect a journey for the senses. They will be part of a musical moment that will not be recreated and will be an experience for the history books in South Australia.


CAN YOU SHARE WHAT PREPARATION GOES INTO SUCH A SHOW?

This show is about being mentally fit. I am working with a nutritionist to ensure that I am fit for the performance. This is a test of physical and mental endurance.

I really need to be match fit for this one. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done, and I am taking all the steps to be in the zone for this one.


IS THIS YOUR MOST AMBITIOUS UNDERTAKING?

It’s unchartered territory for me, but I think now is the time. I like to agree to things and then work out how they will become a reality. This is a time in history to be ambitious and push the creative boundaries.


WAS THE LAB A NATURAL CHOICE FOR THIS SHOW?

Absolutely, this could not happen without Anne Wiberg and The Lab. The space is so unique and is suited to this style of improvised and experiential live performance.

I love everything that The Lab represents. It’s an immersive playground for artists like me.


ANY ADVICE AS TO HOW BEST EXPERIENCE THIS SHOW?

Come with an open mind. Stay an hour or for a full day. Whether it’s for a short while or the full cycle, the experience will be special and something we will all be talking about for years to come.
