Australian Dance Theatre - THIS WEEK!

 

An internationally acclaimed dance company will bring one of their most exciting works to the Empire Theatres stage on August 24 with Australian Dance Theatre’s electrifying Be Your Self Redux.

 Visiting as part of the Empire Theatres 20th anniversary season, Australian Dance Theatre (ADT) has thrilled sellout audiences around the world with their performances of cutting edge dance.

Be Your Self, performing at the Empire Theatre for the first time, features the athletic dancers of ADT who transform into erupting, powerful and emotional entities, projecting startling physical images.

Produced by ADT Artistic Director, Garry Stewart, Be Your Self Redux is a distilled version of the original production, still fusing Stewarts audacious choreography with spoken word to create an exciting dance work that leaves audiences questioning the underpinnings of who they are.

Arising from conversations with a Buddhist monk, a neurologist, physiologist, and literary academic, Stewart situates the body at the centre of the piece and reveals that despite our civilising cultural influences, the body is still a force to be reckoned with.
