where the heart is (2012)
In 2012, EDC remounted the award-winning where the heart is at QPAC.
Natalie Weir’s multi award-winning production, where the heart is, returned by popular demand to its home stage at QPAC.
Set against the iconic remnants of an old ‘Queenslander’, where the heart is follows a young man’s story as he returns to his childhood home and experiences the emotionally charged memories of his past.
EDC & QPAC present
where the heart is
Playhouse Theatre, QPAC
10 – 18 August 2012
This is a truly beautiful Queensland story and an evocative piece of dance theatre. Highly regarded for its strong story telling, the production features exquisite choreography, stunning stage design, emotionally resonant live music and dynamic, physical dance.
Whether a place of residence, refuge or comfort, home is where the heart is … a place that allows you to breathe and dream.
For this staging, we welcome Daryl Brandwood to EDC, and he will take on the role of The Father. The roles of The Young Man and The Brother will be shared by David Williams and Jack Ziesing. Riannon McLean reprises the role of The Mother and Elise May and Samantha Mitchell return as The Grandmother and First Love respectively.
John Rodger’s score is played live on stage by Pearly Black (vocals), Marc Hannaford (pianist) and Topology’s Christa Powell (strings).
“Love, loss, sorrow and joy are poignantly evoked in an exquisite synthesis of dance, music and design.” The Courier Mail

“Weir continues to unfold and reveal the full emotional landscape of the human heart.” The Australian
