Dancenorth’s Underground leaps from the darkly moody and hilarious to the wildly athletic .
Set in a subway during rush hour, Underground is a place of crowded isolation, familiar yet strange. It’s a world where commuters slip between mundane reality and a vivid dream world – disconnected from each other, yet capable of great compassion and tenderness.
Fuelled by the breathtaking choreography of Dancenorth’s Artistic Director, Gavin Webber, Underground is dance theatre at its explosive best with a blistering score by Luke Smiles carving it up with Nick Cave, the Nine Inch Nails and Messerchups.
Gavin Webber and dancers.
Alice Hinde, Charmene Yap, Hsin Ju Chiu, Joshua Thomson, Kate, Harman, Kyle Page
Supported by – Underground is toured by Performing Lines for Mobile States: Touring Contemporary Performance Australia, with the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and through Playing Australia, the national performing arts touring program.
