Australasian Dance Collective unleashes THREE astonishing works from renowned choreographers Jack Lister, Melanie Lane and Gabrielle Nankivell.
Melanie Lane is one of Australia’s strongest choreographic voices, seamlessly blending elegance with sexy, edgy physicality. Set to a driving soundtrack from renowned composer, Clark, Alterum transports you to a universe beyond our natural world.
Drawing on the reoccurring themes of the supernatural body, seen in history through mythological hybrid creatures or in today’s hyper-real superheroes of science fiction, Lane reflects on the human body and its search for intimacy.
Brisbane rising star, Jack Lister, fuses dance and visual art in the intricate and haunting 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.
Visionary dance-maker Gabrielle Nankivell's work draws on the idea of apertures and the curious potential of holes while exploring the transient space of imagination and feeling.
THREE is a mesmerising and ambitious triple bill that has critics raving.
