Where the heart is
Time, memory and a sense of place in iconic Queensland dance.
Whether a place of residence, refuge or comfort, home is where the heart is… a place that allows you to breathe and dream.
Enter the emotionally charged memories of a young man’s past as Australasian Dance Collective’s six incredible dancers and three gifted musicians perform Natalie Weir’s first full-length work as Artistic Director of the company. With a breathtaking score by John Rodgers, where the heart is features dynamic, physical and emotionally resonant music and dance.
Set against the iconic remnants of an old ‘Queenslander’,with lyrics inspired by David Malouf’s novel 12 Edmondstone Street, this multi-arts performance is deeply imbued with a sense of place and memories of home.
“Australasian Dance Collective’s return season of Where the Heart Is well and truly stole my heart. The characters, the concept, the choreography, the staging and the score … I was in awe.” — XS Entertainment
