SLOW DANCES FOR FAST TIMES

Critically acclaimed choreographer Martin del Amo creates 12 choreographic portraits. Each portrait represents a point of difference in an environment of perceived sameness and conformity – mini-acts of solitary defiance. Each solo has a distinct soundtrack ranging from pop favourites, dance anthems of the last 50 years and operatic arias. Featuring:  Sara Black, Benjamin Hancock, Raghav Handa, Julie-Anne Long, Sean Marcs, Jane McKernan, Kirk Page, Elizabeth Ryan, Luke Smiles, Vicki Van Hout, Jade Dewi Tyas Tunggal and James Welsby.

‘Martin del Amo runs his own race as a performer, engaging the audience with the familiar yet provoking thoughts beyond our everyday experience.’ Sydney Morning Herald
