Propel - Expressions Dance Company
Four choreographers combine to showcase the latest in contemporary dance.
What does it take to thrust an art form forward? In the world of dance, four emerging choreographers, an urge to experiment, a group of talented performers and a stage to unleash their creations all provide a great start. That's Propel in a nutshell. The latest effort from Expressions Dance Company, which runs from March 3 to 11, toys with the form to create something new and bold.
Well, as the number of creative driving forces indicates, make that four new and bold pieces in fact. Lisa Wilson's Hollow Lands draws upon the feelings that lurk beneath the surface, while Amy Hollingsworth's Deeper Than Ink captures the emotional intensity of human relationships — and that's only half of the program.
Elsewhere, Xu Yiming comes to Brisbane from Beijing's LDTX Dance Company to offer up the Australian premiere of his solo Waiting Alone. And, then there's Elise May's Written on the Body, which ponders physicality and privacy.
