Performing Arts and Dance

There are so many things that people love in their lives and there are so many things that they like to do when they are free. Arts is one such activity which matches both of the aforementioned situations. Arts is a concept that has been in this world for thousands of years and the connection between arts and people is a historic relationship. When it comes to arts, there are so many categories available. Among these categories, there are some which have able to get into people’s soul. Performing arts and Dance are two such categories in arts which most of the people love most.

Performing Arts AustraliaWhen the word “art” is heard, there are some main categories which come to our minds within milliseconds and performing arts and dance are always there. There are some people who follow these versions of arts for their passion or as a hobby. But when it comes to the present, performing arts and dance are not framed only into just hobbies. Today it has become a profession and there are so many people in the world who have made their careers in the performing arts and dance industry. Even most of the parents today, guide their children to performing arts and dance, because they know that in contrast to the past, art has a great demand in the world. Most of the professionals in this field have succeeded in their careers with a better guidance and practice.

To succeed in any career, a better guidance of the specialists in that certain field and practice matter a lot. So in performing arts and dance too, it is never too late to have the guidance of a professional, if you need to succeed in this great field. Expression Dance Company is one such place in Australia where you can build your skills on performing arts and dance. There are so many professionals who can guide you to the top of the field.

Expressions Double Season Acclaim!

Expressions have concluded a highly successful
August Double Season, in Brisbane, at the Judith Wright Centre
of Contemporary Art. The Double Season featured Maggi Sietsma’s The
5th Door
,
followed closely by Memory, a double-bill performance
with two guest choreographers: Natalie Weir and her work Jigsaw,
and Cheng Tsung Lung with Fragments of Memory.

The 5th Door, a contemporary reinvention of the classic
tale of Bluebeard by Maggi Sietsma, received
fanstastic feedback from audiences: “intense and beautiful
choreography”,
“innovative, thought-provoking and relevant”, “strong,
passionate performance that addressed the issue of domestic violence
in an expressive manner”
. Critical reviews responded
with praise, as
The 5th Door “demonstrates why the company has
been consistently internationally acclaimed: superb performers
delivering socially relevant yet engaging dance theatre, reinforced
by a compelling score and dramatic design elements”
.

Audiences were again inspired and moved by the
second Brisbane season Memory, with two distinct yet strong
dance performances.
Jigsaw, by Natalie Weir (originally performed in New york
and China) engaged audiences with it’s inventive and physical interpretation
of phobias and the relationships affected by them. Reviews
commended the successful re-mount of Jigsaw “as
testimony to Weir’s inventive vision and ability to tap into the
psyche…so many of it’s images have remained familiar”.

The World Premiere of Fragments
of Memory
by
Cheng Tsung Lung moved audience members inspiring an overwhelming
response of positive feedback. Memory was described as “spectacular
and captivating”, “unusual, beautiful, fluid”, “exhilirating
and inspiring”
with one audience member so enthused
she wrote to us,
“Amazing! I wish I could watch hours of it!”.
