Weaving together music and astonishingly powerful contemporary dance, The Beginning of Nature is a compelling and ritualistic work from world-renowned Australian Dance Theatre.
Grace and strength combine in this work to create an evocative depiction of the complex symphony of rhythms in nature, that will leave audiences entranced.
Portrayed by the nine stellar dancers of ADT, this extraordinary work explores life cycles and themes of metamorphosis and transformation within nature.
Performed with two vocalists live on stage, the spell-binding score combines electronica, strings and a libretto sung in Kaurna language, the first language of the Adelaide Plains, home to ADT.
At times fierce and explosive, at other times graceful and meditative, this stunning work will delight and inspire.
The Beginning of Nature is a tour-de-force from one of the world’s most formidable companies, and is sure to become another seminal work for Australian Dance Theatre.
