Dancenorth presents IN TWO MINDS

Dancenorth presents 'In Two Minds'

Brisbane Power House 26 & 27 August.

Dancenorth presents two distinct new works A from three of Australia’s most exciting young choreographers this month. 

Alisdair Macindoe’s A Pre-emptive Requiem For Mother Nature delves into the magic of the organic world, reflecting on physical phenomena we often take for granted. Driven by inimitable natural forms the performers interact like flocking birds, schools of fish and clouds in the wind. 

Kyle Page and Amber Haines rigorously explore ‘the duet’ in ‘Syncing Feeling’. Delving into Theory of Mind, Metacognition and Mirror Neurons, Syncing Feeling Illuminates cognitive processes that facilitate a host of enigmatic aspects of the human mind, including empathy, imitation learning and the decoding of another person’s actions, feelings and emotions. Groundbreaking research within the field of neuroscience is challenging preconceptions around human interactions and only now beginning to prove what Eastern philosophy has known for millennia… the only thing that separates us is our skin.

Tickets $40 and $35 concession26 & 27 August, 730pmTo book visit brisbanepowerhouse.org

TUTU REIMAGINED

Tutu reimagined
QUT Art Museum
4 July to 6 September

The ballerina and her tutu have been romanticised for hundreds of years. Throughout the 17th-19th centuries, as dance developed into a specialised art form, so too did the costumes. Specially designed garments were introduced to allow the dancer maximum movement and to expose the complicated footwork seen en pointe. Tutu reimagined brings together a collection of garments by Australia's top designers, commissioned by The Australian Ballet for their 2003 project, TUTU. Designers were asked to create their interpretation of a tutu with the project culminating in a one-off performance at the Sydney Opera House in July 2003. QUT Art Museum now brings together these costumes for Brisbane audiences. Featuring fifteen top Australian designers, including Akira, Balarinji, Collette Dinnigan, Dinosaur Designs, Gwendolynne, Michelle Jank, Easton Pearson, Alex Perry, Toni Maticevski, Sass and Bide, Scanlan and Theodore, Harry Seidler, and Tigerlily.
