Who really holds the power at this sophisticated table?
And who will be in control by the time coffee is served?
An elegant dinner party hosted by an influential young man for his manipulative guests is thrown into turmoil when power meets greed, ambition and jealousy. As the evening wears on, The Host exposes society’s insatiable desire for control and status and the power play between the guests intensifies as the accusations start to fly.
Combining gripping dance theatre with a touch of explosive fun, The Host will take you on a thrilling ride through the lifestyles of the power-hungry. You will be struck by the sublime costumes by Brisbane-based fashion designer, Gail Sorronda, the live music performed by Southern Cross Soloists and the enduring story told by multiple award-winning choreographer, Natalie Weir in this world premiere production.
