Everyday Requiem

An ordinary life is the most extraordinary story of all.

Be swept into a poignant and uplifting story of life, told through the captivating contemporary dance theatre of Queensland’s Australasian Dance Collective, alongside astounding acapella vocals by The Australian Voices.

Set against the backdrop of Australian history from the 1950s to today, Everyday Requiem is a powerful story of one ordinary man (acclaimed Brisbane performer Brian Lucas) as he revisits the memories that have created the remarkable and relatable tale of his life – and ours.

Touching moments from our daily lives are interpreted through the breathtaking physicality of the Australasian Dance Collective dancers, choreographed by ADC’s Helpmann Award-winning Artistic Director, Natalie Weir. The Australian Voices join Australasian Dance Collective on stage, performing an exquisite original score by Gordon Hamilton, using only the human voice. The cast also features special guests, senior dancers from WaW Dance, in this inspiring celebration of the tragedies and triumphs we all share, everyday.

Everyday Requiem is Natalie Weir’s final work for the company as Artistic Director. Following critically-acclaimed productions such as When Time Stops, The Red Shoes, Behind Closed Doors and 4Seasons, Natalie Weir's Everyday Requiem is not to be missed.
