From the pioneering Australian Dance Theatre comes a dance and sound work exploring the rhythms in nature. Humans, and all living forms, exist within a phenomenally complex symphony of overlapping rhythms that constitute life itself. These rhythms are manifested in day and night, the seasons, tidal patterns, migration, weather patterns and the binary of growth and decay. World-renowned Artistic Director Garry Stewart has woven together music and astonishingly powerful contemporary dance to create a compelling work, harnessing the grace and strength of nine extraordinary dancers to explore nature’s complex forces. Acclaimed composer Brendan Woithe has collaborated with consultant Jack Buckskin to develop a spellbinding score that combines electronica, strings and a libretto performed live in the reclaimed and revived Kaurna language, the first language of the Adelaide Plains, home to ADT. The Beginning of Nature is at times fierce and explosive, at other times graceful and meditative. It’s a stunning work that will delight and inspire.
