Lister / Lane / Shechter

Australasian Dance Collective is taking three original works from renowned choreographers Jack Lister, Melanie Lane and Hofesh Shechter on an Australian East Coast tour this Autumn/Winter.

/ Alterum

Melanie Lane is one of Australia’s strongest choreographic voices, her works seamlessly blending elegance with edgy, physicality. Stealing from ancient and current mythologies of the supernatural body, Alterum manifests newfound heroes in a parallel existence that is both urgent and obscure. Lane is joined by long-term musical collaborator, Clark, in this sexy and cool must-see production.

/ Still Life

Brisbane’s own rising star of the choreographic world, Jack Lister, fuses dance and visual art to create the stunning mainstage performance, Still Life. Inspired by the artworks of the 16th and 17th century Memento Mori movement, it serves as a touchstone of our own mortality, the beauty in decay and our relationship with time. Still Life embraces the dichotomy of the permanence of visual artworks against the impermanent nature of dance, creating a world of poignant conflict – time passes but memories endure.

/ Cult

Presented in association with Hofesh Shechter Company, ADC performs Cult, the work that propelled international superstar and dance revolutionary, Hofesh Shechter into his globally renowned career. A once-in-a-generation talent, Shechter is inspired by Israeli folk dance, rock gigs, military exercise, nightclubs, installation art and film to create pumping, high energy works that are accompanied by scores that he composes himself.

Cult is an explosive, electric piece that takes a dark, ironic view of the powers that steer our society. A rich soundtrack composed by Shechter himself enhances the lithe routine of six dancers in this forceful, yet touching, performance.
