QL2 Dance: the Quantum Leap ensemble – Communicate

The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre
18–20 May 2023

This is a triple bill created by  choreographers Alice Lee Holland (Townsville), Kyall Shanks (Melbourne) and Lordfai Navinda Pachimsawat (Bangkok) working with Artistic Director Ruth Osborne, Assistant to the Artistic Director Stephen Gow and the Quantum Leap ensemble.

The works explore aspects of communication – spoken or written words, through facial expressions, signs, images and movements, meaning, intentions, ideas, who we are, what we want, information overload, miscommunication, misunderstanding through cultural differences, socio-economic backgrounds, gender.

The language of dance holds a special place in this communication world. It is a language held in the body.
