Theatre Season 2017
Australian Dance Theatre has thrilled sellout audiences around the world with performances of cutting edge dance. Now the internationally acclaimed company brings Be Your Self (Redux) to the Townsville Civic Theatre for the first time.
In Garry Stewart’s Be Your Self (Redux), audiences are engaged in a complex dialogue in which they are compelled to explore what makes you ‘you’.
The athletic dancers of ADT are transformed into erupting, powerful, and emotional entities, projecting startling physical images.
Arising from conversations with a Buddhist monk, neurologist, physiologist and literary academic, Stewart situates the body at the centre of his inquiry and reveals that despite our civilising cultural influences, the body is still a force to be reckoned with.
A distilled version of the original Be Your Self, Be Your Self Redux fuses Stewart’s audacious choreography with spoken word to create an exciting dance work that leaves audiences questioning the underpinnings of who they are.
