One of Australia’s most inventive and celebrated choreographers, Stephanie Lake, brings Colossus to Arts Centre Melbourne. See the stage flooded with bodies in this monumental new dance work created with fifty dancers who will take over the theatre stage and beyond. Out of the darkness, the theatre gradually fills with a heaving, living, breathing, joyous mass of dancing bodies, moving in complex unison and wild individuality. They jostle and coexist in perfect imperfection, illustrating the push and pull of humanity and the exquisite patterning found in the natural world. This show will be a big rush of humanity, a moving sculpture.
With a cast of 50 young and emerging dance artists and a team of Australia’s leading collaborators, Colossus is not to be missed.
