‘A gorgeous, trippy eco-cabaret.’ – The New Yorker

cryptochrome is a ritual meditation and sonic odyssey across the animal kingdom to reflect on how and why we voyage. Named after a photorecptor believed to be responsible for the ability to navigate using the Earth’s geomagnetic field, the work explores forms of perception and intuition beyond the limited scope of the visible.
