A history of social dance
PUNCTURE embraces the risk and ritual of intimacy on a dance floor. Watching bodies moving in rhythm, you are guided from the restraint and formality of classical dance through the sensuality of the tango, to the rebellion of youth and the freedom of dance.
Stefan Gregory’s score, inspired by the great songwriters, from Monteverdi to Madonna, is sung live by a 30-voice choir, accompanied by renowned percussionist Bree van Reyk. They take to the dance floor with 12 young dancers led by two of Australia’s finest dance artists, Kristina Chan and Joshua Thomson.
Presented by Legs On The Wall, FORM Dance Projects, VOX – Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and Sydney Festival.
