The revelatory and beautiful creation of Tanja Liedtke, Graeme Murphy’s selected successor at Sydney Dance Company, explores the paradoxes that exist within life’s rituals; the light, the dark, the virtuous, the evil. While Byron Perry, a bright figure in the national contemporary dance scene, interprets light through mystical, frivolous and pure physicality.Liedtke created Enter Twilight for the company in 2004, before her accidental death three years later. The show was rapturously received and returns by popular demand to a deservedly larger audience, sharing the work of an exciting and tremendously gifted young choreographer.
Perry’s Light Entertainment is a theatrical look at the magical, lively and entertaining interpretations of light. A dancer of great talent and experience, Perry is now one of Australia’s most dynamic choreographersTwo diverging views from two acclaimed artists, both considered part of the distinguished Tasdance stable.
From its beginnings as Australia’s first dance-in-education company in 1981, Tasdance has grown in stature and has earned a national reputation for the strength, diversity, innovation and accessibility of its Australian contemporary repertoire.
