RIVERSIDE THEATRES PRESENTS NATALIE WEIR’S CARMEN SWEET
Produced by Expressions Dance Company & Queensland Performing Arts Centre
Spend the night with the definitive seductress of stage as she weaves her deliciously wicked wiles through one of Expressions Dance Company’s (EDC) most loved productions! Riverside Theatres will present Natalie Weir’s Carmen Sweet, on 10th and 11th November 2015.
This performance is part of EDC’s regional tour of Carmen Sweet throughout NSW and Victoria in October and November. The only other Sydney performance will be at Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Friday 13 November. For all regional dates and venues please see EDC’s website.
Performed to Rodion Shchedrin’s gripping score, Carmen Suite, this iconic tale of Spanish heat and gypsy passion unravels when naïve soldier Don Josè has his heart ignited by the fiery Carmen.
Josè’s attempts to tame the freedom-loving beauty are futile, and when she leaves him for the famous matador Escamillo, all three are engulfed in the flames of jealousy and revenge.
Natalie Weir’s Carmen is a free spirit; dangerous, volatile and vulnerable, brought to vivid life by three dancers playing her different states of mind and alter egos.
“It’s such a fiery story of passion and revenge and audiences quickly find themselves engulfed in it,” said EDC Artistic Director, Natalie Weir. “The Carmen story has all the elements for great dance: passion, love, revenge, jealousy, betrayal and even murder.”
