Australasian Dance Collective (ADC) brings you THREE highly anticipated Australian premieres from renowned choreographers Jack Lister, Melanie Lane and Hofesh Shechter.
Brisbane’s own rising star of the choreographic world, Jack Lister, fuses dance and visual art to create a 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.
Melanie Lane is one of Australia’s strongest female 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 will be joined by long-term musical collaborator, Clark, in this sexy and cool must-see production.
Queensland finally gets its chance to experience international superstar and dance revolutionary, Hofesh Shechter.
Presented in association with Hofesh Shechter Company, ADC unveils the Australian premiere of Cult – the work that propelled Shechter into his globally-renowned career.
Instinctive and raw, it is a powerful illustration of his unique and acclaimed choreography and is the first time the London-based choreographer’s work has been performed in Queensland.
