Here is a trance-noise odyssey that transcends all borders, a unique music/dance ritual.
Indonesia’s tour-de-force heavy metal duo Senyawa and Australian choreographic luminaries Lucy Guerin and Gideon Obarzanek join forces with two of Australia’s leading dance companies – Dancenorth and Lucy Guerin Inc.
As the performance unfolds, Senyawa’s unique fusion of primal voice with handmade electrified stringed instruments slowly builds to a euphoric pitch. The dancers are propelled into ecstatic abandonment. The distinction between dancer and non-dancer, audience and performer, dissolves as the performance transitions into an all-in dance event.
This is an electric experience for joining in, or just for watching.
