Murder, melodrama and Wes Anderson combine in this theatrical dance double-header.
‘Act 2, Scenes 1-4’ is a mischievous take on Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel by Pina Bausch fellow Scott Elstermann. A visually striking crime caper, we are swept into a world of saturated colour, playful movement and sinister murder.
Gunshots at a ball, evil stepmothers and town gossip feed into a melodrama of three Australian women doing what they had to do. ‘Love You, Stranger’ is a deliciously fascinating exploration of true crimes and true love, by Shona Erskine. Two world premieres that will have you reconsidering what you thought about contemporary dance.
