Brisbane Festival presents



19 - 22 Sept |


Dancenorth / Liminal Spaces (AUS)

World Premiere

"★★★★★ - Dancenorth have unleashed something new and profound for contemporary dance." THE BAREFOOT REVIEW

A world premiere from Dancenorth, the new powerhouse of Australian dance that gave us the multi-award-winning Attractor at last year’s Brisbane Festival.

Dust takes a deep and daring dive into how – through the lottery of birth – we inherit the architecture of restriction and opportunity. How do we agitate and illuminate the engineering of our own existence?

Dust is an audacious new collaboration created by Dancenorth’s Artistic Director Kyle Page and Associate Artistic Director Amber Haines, featuring live violin by Canada’s Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt Zion) and an architecturally-designed set by the award-winning Liminal Spaces.

Nadia Jade

The opening performance of Ashley McLellan was spectacularly disturbing and a fitting start to the piece, juxtaposed by the perfectly in-sync ensemble work on the far side of the stage. Read more.

This performance contains partial nudity, sound pressure effects and uses a haze machine and pyrotechnics. Suitable for audiences 12+ years.
