“Attractor channels a sense of frenzied possession….the dancers are brilliant.” - Dance Australia


PRESENTS WHITE BIRD UNCAGED 2017-18

Partnering with Dancenorth Australia, in Queensland near the Great Barrier Reef, acclaimed choreographers Lucy Guerin and Gideon Obarzanek (Chunky Move Founder) have created Attractor, a unique, ecstatic music/dance ritual for nonbelievers. Indonesian music duo Senyawa will perform live, propelling the exceptional dancers into wild physical abandonment and ecstatic release that transmits to the audience as a visceral empathic experience.
