When Australian Dance Theatre first presented Garry Stewart’s work in London 12 years ago it was described by the times as ‘the most hazardous explosion of movement seen in London in years’. Since then australian dance theatre has gone on to astound audiences around the globe with its uniquely powerful style of contemporary dance and celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2015.

Now Australian Dance Theatre returns to Mandurah with Garry Stewart’s Be Your Self.

Explore what makes you ‘you’ in this powerful work as the athletic dancers of adt are transformed into erupting, emotional entities projecting startling physical images to a wildly unpredictable, cartoonish, electronic score.

Be Your Self challenges our understanding of who we are by unpicking the conventions we use to convince ourselves of a singular ‘I’. In this extraordinary creation Garry Stewart situates the body at the centre of his inquiry and reveals that despite our civilising cultural inscriptions the body is still a force to be reckoned with.

Review

“..An exhilarating dance work that is entertaining to watch and interesting to think about ... nine outstanding dancers in a constantly moving jigsaw of limbs and torsos.” – Sydney Morning Herald

“Be Your Self is a slick production performed by a confident company of strong dancers that literally fling themselves into the physicality of the choreography.” – Daily Telegraph
