Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy and Gluttony; we invite you to indulge in sin this August with the world-premiere of Seven Deadly Sins from award winning contemporary dance company Expressions Dance Company (EDC) at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).
From 21 to 29 August 2015 in the Playhouse, explore the sinful nature of mankind as internationally acclaimed choreographer, Natalie Weir, and the Expressions Dance Company ensemble of award-winning dancers retell a wicked tale of mortal sin through electrifying contemporary dance.
Characterised by her unique insights into the human condition, Natalie Weir’s Seven Deadly Sins is rich with imagery, extravagant costumes, villainous wit and breath-taking movement that will grip your senses and transport you on a devilishly delicious adventure.
Award winning Artistic Director Natalie Weir is known internationally for her highly physical partner work, organic movement style, and creative masterpieces that balance risk with accessibility and humanity.
“7 Deadly Sins brings an ancient concept into modern times, with a fresh interpretation of this age old tale. Even nowadays, the seven deadly sins still exist within everyone; it’s up to us to let them in or push them out.”
“Our incredible EDC dancers will breathe new life into this well known concept, with decadent costumes and set design by Bill Haycock. I’m particularly excited to be working with composer Darrin Verhagen, whose electrifying and evocative sounds will be a thrilling addition to the work.”
This brand new Queensland work will make its premiere during QPAC’s 30th anniversary year. QPAC is celebrating the many partnerships and collaborations that have been fostered over the Centre’s three decades of storytelling, and is focused on a future that continues to provide a forum for Queensland artists and Queensland works to be performed and seen.
Spotlighting the inherent frailty and imperfections that exist within us all don’t miss out on the strictly limited season of EDC’s Seven Deadly Sins. Book now via qpac.com.au or call 136 246.
