SPRING in Autumn
31 Oct - 2 Nov 2019


Dancenorth, Lucy Guerin Inc, Gideon Obarzanek & Senyawa

Attractor unites two of the best Australian dance companies, Lucy Guerin Inc and Dancenorth, traditional Indonesian folk idioms and heavy metal vocals, virtuoso dancers and audiences. Indonesia’s tour-de-force music duo Senyawa reinterprets the Javanese tradition of entering trance through dance and music as a powerful, secular, present-day ritual.

As the performance unfolds, Senyawa’s unique fusion of hand-made electrified stringed instruments with powerful vocals slowly builds to a euphoric pitch while the dancers are propelled into wild physical abandonment and ecstatic release, creating a visceral, empathic experience for the audience. Audiences and performers unite in a cross-cultural, shared ritual. The show is an ode to the power of music and dance.
