- St Paul's Hall
- Saturday 7:30pm – 8:30pm
A dance theatre project co-devised by 5 emerging professional dancers with disability, mentored by Michael Hennessy and Kate McDowell and set somewhere down the road from you.
The dynamics and tensions of share house life come to the fore as the five young housemates decide to throw a dance party. But with distractions at every corner, will this ever get off the ground? The fact that all five dancers are at various stages of trying to ‘leave home’ in real life gives this struggle an extra ‘bite’. This production celebrates pop culture and the housemates’ love of cheesy beats, wacky improvisations, work avoidance, and one another. It explores the limits of mime, gesture, and dance to create a world in which life itself is the party.
With more than 80 workshops and 4 full length works behind them, one of which has been short-listed for an Australian Dance Award for outstanding achievement in community dance, Sprung!! is at the cutting edge of integrated dance theatre in Australia.
