Repertory

Swoon! (25 min. no intermission)

Swoon! is a 20 minute performance where 4 daredevil Australians tell a spectacular story of love, loss, joy and freedom up on high. It was awarded the Second Prize at the 1999 and 2000 Shizuoka Daidogei World Cup, and has been performed worldwide. Swoon! is a vital, spirited performance with spectacular image-making and seductive comedy. Accompanied by a unique and eclectic soundtrack blending some classics with original music, the audience is taken on a journey of beauty, love and laughter.

The Spheres (20 min. no intermission)

The Spheres is a cosmic and awe inspiring performance that takes a whimsical look at physics, the miracle of rebirth and power behind these two phenomena. Four celestial beings emerge out of illuminated globes to recount a tale of transformation and wonder. This dazzling quartet version of The Spheres is twenty minutes and for presentation at nighttime only.

The Three Belles (20 min. no intermission)

The Three Belles is a 20 minute performance filled with seduction and charm. Three beautiful belles, attired in regal, purple hoop skirts dazzle and transport the audience into a dreamlike world of period charm and frivolity. Through a whirlwind of dance and movement, they transcend past, present and future as they bewitch and enchant their admirers.
