Zata Omm Dance Projects
Brodie Stevenson and Brendan Wyatt
Dusk has turned to night and a male dancer inhabits a mysterious dream-like world where he encounters his mirror image, dancing among shimmering images of celestial phenomena, including the moon, the aurora borealis and a galaxy of stars.

Onward Ho, My Love

Julia Aplin w/ tiger princess dance projects
Yvonne Ng and Brendan Wyatt

Onward Ho, My Love is a duet of a man in a top hat, a woman in a red gown. A path to be taken. What happens along the journey may be seen as questionable, amusing, strange, interesting, odd, joyful, sad, elegant, rough, tender, harsh, perhaps even confusing but always with the wild sense of commitment, integrity and bravery that the dancers bring to the work.

The Horologium

Michael Caldwell
Mairéad Filgate, Molly Johnson, Meredith Thompson, Yvonne Ng and Brodie Stevenson
A nine-foot tall accordion-playing matriarch gathers her brood under a giant skirt, from whose protection they emerge to entertain the audience and capture an unsuspecting bystander.
