ABOUT THE SHOW
Stunt doubles, starlets, coppers and a crime. Whodunit?
Welcome to a fantasy of high drama, glamour and mystery.
In Jack Lister’s new full-length work for Australasian Dance Collective, we are taken into a world of femme fatales, hardened detectives and elusive suspects each with their own secrets.
Prepare to enter the halcyon days of an era bygone and become immersed in this tangled plot of motivations and alibis.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
Australasian Dance Collective is one of the nation’s leading contemporary dance companies.
Established in 1984 as Expressions Dance Company by Maggi Sietsma AM, the company has created more than 180 works by 80 national and international choreographers. Harnessing the talent of an extraordinary ensemble of six dancers, the company has achieved significant recognition through national awards, including three Helpmann Awards and three Australian Dance Awards.
Brisbane-based ADC is a significant cultural resource and a leading provider of dance performance and sector development. We recognise the need to be nationally and internationally connected, represented through our diverse range of local and global partnerships.
Our core desire is to harness the power of the collective. Our signature is one of plurality not a singular fingerprint. In all areas of creation and performance we work as a collective where like-minded individuals have robust and invigorating conversations that give rise to new dance, to new art.
ADC invests in artists and art and cultivates interdisciplinary collaborations and imaginative partnerships. Through dance, we embrace an intergenerational focus and innovative co-creations – eliciting and presenting these myriad voices and forms to create something never seen before.
