The score is live classical music reimagined for a new world, broken apart to be rearranged and performed by four virtuoso concert musicians playing a combination of piano, cello, beats and violin. The result is a dynamic soundtrack that honours and delights in so many familiar, beloved musical themes – from Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi, Debussy and more – motifs that exist in our collective subconscious, reworked to interweave with the exhilarating combination of story and movement. The frequency that this music evokes in your soul is exciting, playful and powerful.
“leap is unlike anything I have ever choreographed,” says Amy Campbell. “I have been living and dreaming this show for over five years now. It celebrates resilience and tenacity, nothing beats the collision of bodies and live music. Each of the dancers are brilliant soloists. My goal is to celebrate their unique artistry, individuality, passion and excellent sense of adventure. “Making art that entertains, enthrals and is accessible.”
leap was assisted by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand fund (RISE) an Australian Government initiative.
