Dancenorth Australia

The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival presents

Dancenorth Australia
Jan 18-19, 2019 | 8pm
Vancouver Playhouse

This supremely rousing show begins with two musicians and eight dancers onstage. Indonesian duo Senyawa plays operatic, heavy metal-inflected music spiced with ritual and folk idioms from their native country. Choreographers Lucy Guerin and Gideon Obarzanek work with Dancenorth Australia and the band to create one wild experience: as the music builds in power, the dancers increase their abandon and pre-selected members of the audience join in. By the climax of the show, they’re all moving in an atavistic frenzy.
