Led by Artistic Director Danielle Micich, Force Majeure produces critically acclaimed dance theatre.
Using its trademark blend of text and movement, the company makes original dance theatre works reflecting Australian life in all its diversity, by exploring and questioning contemporary culture using intelligence, humour and insight.
A resident company at Carriageworks, the company has set the standard for movement based theatre in Australia. Force Majeure has presented major works with Adelaide Festival, Belvoir, Melbourne Festival, Sydney Festival, Sydney Theatre Company, Lyon Biennale de la Danse, Place des Arts Montreal, Dublin Theatre Festival and Seoul Performing Arts Festival.
Force Majeure is committed to supporting the development of dance theatre in Australia through its INCITE program. The organisation has nurtured the independent dance careers of Kristina Chan, Ghenoa Gela and Byron Perry.
Force Majeure was established in 2002 by founding Artistic Director Kate Champion.
