Expressions Dance Company (EDC), Queensland’s leading contemporary dance company, has announced their signature season for 2015.
EDC and QPAC will continue with their highly successful partnership by co-producing and presenting another world premiere of Artistic Director Natalie Weir’s latest work, Seven Deadly Sins, to be performed in the Playhouse, QPAC from Friday 21 to Saturday 29 August 2015.
“EDC is committed to producing and showcasing exceptional dance and these large scale dance theatre productions have been so well received over the past five years”, Ms Weir said.
“Seven Deadly Sins will be a celebration of the EDC dancers’ extraordinary physicality with explosive and daring dance alongside a poignant story line.
“The production will feature a team of exceptionally talented creative designers including Set and Costume Designer, Bill Haycock and Lighting Designer, David Walters. A beautiful electronic score will be composed by Darrin Verhagen.”
The centrepiece of EDC’s 2015 season, Seven Deadly Sins will be the fifth signature collaboration between EDC and QPAC, following where the heart is, R&J, When Time Stops and The Red Shoes.
Spotlighting the inherent frailty and imperfections that exist in us all, Seven Deadly Sins will explore the age-old sinful nature of mankind, retold through electrifying contemporary dance characterised by Natalie Weir’s unique insights into the human condition.
The production will boast rich imagery, extravagant costumes and breath-taking movement.
EDC’s 2015 Ensemble includes Michelle Barnett, Daryl Brandwood, Benjamin Chapman, Rebecca Hall, Elise May and Jack Ziesing.
