Award winning Choreographer and Expressions Dance Company’s (EDC) Artistic Director, Natalie Weir, brings the company’s brand new work, The Host, to life from 1 to 9 May 2015 in the Cremorne Theatre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).
An elegant dinner party hosted by an influential young man for his manipulative guests is thrown into turmoil when power meets greed, ambition and jealousy. As the evening wears on The Host exposes society’s insatiable desire for control and status and the power play between the guests intensifies as the accusations start to fly.
Who really holds the power at this sophisticated table? And who will be in control by the time coffee is served?
Presented by Expressions Dance Company and Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the season of The Host in Brisbane will be a world premiere.
Combining gripping dance theatre with a touch of explosive fun, The Host will take audiences on a thrilling ride through the lifestyles of the power hungry.
Audiences will be struck by the sublime costumes by Brisbane-based fashion icon and designer Gail Sorronda, sumptuous live music featuring violin Soloist Victoria Sayles, and the enduring story told by multiple award-winning choreographer, Natalie Weir.
Ms Weir said, “The Host will be a highly visual feast for the senses, with modern, high fashion costumes and an exciting, fast moving story. You’ll have never been to a dinner party like this before!”
The Host runs at QPAC for six performances only. Book now via qpac.com.au or call 136 246.
