Dance Energy (2012)
Dance Energy was presented in 2012 as part of Brisbane Festival
Commissioned by Brisbane Festival, Dance Energy will transcended the barriers of classical and contemporary dance and shone a light on the very best Queensland artists.
27 – 30 September 2012
Dancenorth’s Raewyn Hill, EDC’s Natalie Weir and Queensland Ballet’s Gareth Belling will each create a piece to music composed by Australia’s greatest living composer, Peter Sculthorpe.
To bring the performance to a stunning conclusion, London based, New Zealand choreographer Cameron McMillan will create a crescendo of movement using dancers from all three companies.
All four pieces explore the human struggle for survival and a sense of identity in different eras of social and personal adversity. From oppression, displacement, war and anonymity to diversity, openness and triumph over persecution, Dance Energy will take audiences on a thought-provoking journey reflecting themes that unite us all.
Dance Energy will be a rare moment in dance and a Festival highlight not to be missed.
Duration: 1 hour 25 minutes
