A world premiere from Dancenorth, the new powerhouse of Australian dance that gave us the mesmerising and multi award-winning Attractor at last year’s Brisbane Festival.
Dust takes a deep and daring dive into how, through the lottery of birth, we inherit the architecture of restriction and opportunity. Award winning Dancenorth examines personal, social, cultural and political inheritance and the way we question and respond to that which has come before us. How can we scrutinise the past in order to shape the future? In Dust, the dancers attempt to agitate and illuminate the engineering of their own existence.
Dust is an audacious new collaboration created by Dancenorth’s Artistic Director Kyle Page and Associate Artistic Director Amber Haines, featuring live violin by Canada’s Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt Zion) and an architecturally-designed set by the award-winning Liminal Studio.
Dancenorth is known for an unmistakable visual style that pushes its dancers to prodigious virtuosity. Dancenorth has amassed a swathe of national Helpmann Awards, were the 2017 recipients of the prestigious Sidney Myer Performing Arts Group Award and won the 2018 Australian Dance Award for Outstanding Performance by a Company for Attractor.
**** ½ "An exquisite work; a powerful piece of contemporary dance that flirts with potentially heavy-handed imagery but never succumbs to the obvious or the banal. Cohesive and fluid, it integrates movement and design beautifully." - ArtsHub
