Full dance program at Brisbane Festival


The Brisbane Festival has announced its schedule for 2021, with some of the state’s top local dance companies among its highlights.

Karul Projects, Brisbane’s Indigenous Performing Arts Company, will present Weredingo, choreographed by the co-founder of the company, Thomas ES Kelly. The work promises “Karul’s characteristic lively movement, combined with text, song and projections, Weredingo challenges what you think you know about shape shifting.”

Dancenorth will travel south of Townsville to present RED, a program which was forced to close immediately after its first performance at Melbourne’s Rising Festival earlier in the year.

Also on the program, the Queensland premiere of Joel Bray Considerable sexual license, described as “a loving, dirty and passionate look at the true story of ‘the sensuality below’. “

Australian Dance Collective presents Falsification, developed by award-winning creative choreographer and coder Alisdair Macindoe. And the Queensland Ballet appeals to families with its Pierre and the Wolf, performed to Prokofiev’s famous score by the company’s Jette Parker Young Artists and choreographed by Greg Horsman.
