Underground is set in a subway during rush hour, a place of crowded isolation, familiar yet strange.
Ripe with metaphor resonating with ideas of chance, death and resuscitation, this work challenged the very concepts of gravity…mesmerising.”
– Dance Australia
Underground is an explosive new dance theatre work, showcasing the gutsy choreography of Dancenorth’s Artistic Director, Gavin Webber. In Underground, Gavin collaborates with the young and dynamic ensemble of Townsville-based company Dancenorth.
Audiences are transported to a world where commuters slip between mundane reality and a vivid dream world – disconnected from each other, yet capable of great compassion and tenderness.
Underground shifts from darkly moody to hilariously funny to terrifyingly athletic, with Luke Smiles’ powerful score turning it up with Nick Cave, Nine Inch Nails and Messerchups.
