The Blackguard premiered their debut production – Passion May Yet Be Fatal – in 2016 to awesomely rave reviews. Now, company founder and artistic director, Brady Kitchingham is beyond excited to share his latest production Still Breathing to Sydney audiences in June.

Still Breathing will be performing 3 shows at DUTI (Dancing Under The Influence studios) at Newtown, Sydney, on the 16th and 17th of June.

Continuing in Brady’s signature style, this new production is a story-driven showcase of music, movement, and mortality delivered to an epic of punk rock sound and contemporary ‘thrash’ style. In short, this is not your usual contemporary dance experience … and thank god for that!

As his creative follow-up to Passion May Yet Be Fatal, Brady Kitchingham has brought together seven incredible dancers to explore what it means to survive when others can’t bear to live.

The 8 cast of Still Breathing are: Brady Kitchingham, Georgia Shae Anderson, Jeremy Santos, Tayna-Le Golinelli, David Green, Maria Costa, Corey Dohmen & Lace Hanlon.

The vision of this show is both more grandiose and at the same time more intimate. Performing at DUTI in Enmore allows the company to have a smaller audience for each show, and yet allow the proximity to bring them closer to the performance, physically and emotionally.

NOTE: Still Breathing tackles heavy themes within the storyline, including suicide and death, which is why the ticket site has a handy trigger warning, and it is recommended for people over 18 years or 16 years and over with an adult companion.  The audience will leave this show knowing that they have seen one of the most thematically dangerous and visually stimulating independent dance shows that Sydney has hosted in a long time.
