“a phenomenal contemporary work that brought the audience to its feet in appreciation” Dancetrain Magazine
Breathtakingly beautiful and athletic contemporary dance collides with innovative and virtuosic jazz. Queensland’s premier contemporary dance theatre troupe Expressions Dance Company, unites with the award-winning jazz ensemble Trichotomy to present a thought-provoking collaboration that revels in the darkness, playfulness and fragility of the human condition.
The first act features a suite of exciting improvisations and compositions showcasing Trichotomy’s delicate atmospherics and unique fusion of modern jazz, ambient music, avant-garde rock, free jazz and contemporary classical music. The second movement showcases Natalie Weir’s incredible choreography, with pieces from their ‘Behind Closed Doors’ production re-worked exclusively for Stonnington Jazz.
