The Beginning of Nature
Presented by Australian Dance Theatre in association with Adelaide Festival Centre
Weaving together live music and astonishingly powerful contemporary dance, The Beginning of Nature is a compelling and ritualistic work from world-renowned Australian Dance Theatre.
Portrayed by the nine incredible dancers of ADT, this extraordinary work includes live accompaniment by the acclaimed Zephyr Quartet and two vocalists singing in Kaurna language, the first language of the Adelaide Plains.
At times fierce and explosive, at other times graceful and meditative, this stunning work will delight and inspire.
This is a powerful work, in which music, movement and design make a coherent whole, and it drew a rapturous reception from the spellbound crowd Dance Australia
