Forever and Ever
Choreography by Antony Hamilton
Set to a sonically stimulating score by The Presets’ Julian Hamilton, the reprise of Antony Hamilton’s Helpmann award-winning work Forever & Ever fuses a killer mix of dance, techno, high fashion and vivid lighting to hypnotic effect. Exploring ideas of order, chaos, popular culture and human behaviour, this boundary-pushing work is a bold and thrilling theatrical experience that is not to be missed.
★★★★ “It’s an inventive and adventurous ride.” – Time Out
Choreography by Rafael Bonachela
A visceral and deeply moving exploration of the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, this full-length work features a score full of emotional power from Grammy Award-winning composer Bryce Dessner of The National performed live on stage by the Australian String Quartet.
“… arguably the best single piece created by and for an Australian dance company for many years.” – Adelaide Advertiser
