The Fall of Adam is an urban regeneration of Adam's fall from grace. Taking the story to new hi-rise heights and wrestling his descent down through the inferno, he finds his once beautiful eve has turned from the divine to the bovine. A bloody fight with a fat guy in stained underwear (Satan) ends Adam's fall. His body descends the endless flights to his death. He turns back to the dust in which he was created.

About the director

Gail Sneddon is a UK-based director, choreographer and installation artist. She trained at the LABAN Centre for Movement and Dance in London, before touring nationally and internationally as a performer for Nigel Charnock, Athina Vallha and Ersatz. With a passion to apply choreographic technique to other art forms, she set up her own company, Modusforum, in 1999. Concentrating on combining movement with sound and spatial design, Gail created a body of acclaimed performance installation works. She also worked as Artistic director for a broad range of events in various fields such as Live Music, Fashion, Theatre and Dance. In 2002, she completed her MA in Scenography at the prestigious Central St Martin's College of Art and Design in London. Since then, her work has focused as a director of film and single screen work as a format to capture her unique choregraphic and sonic vision in a time-based medium. Her success has led to two new commissions, currently in pre-production.
