THE Lighthouse Theatre will come alive with colour and movement tonight when Tasdance takes to the stage.
The Tasmania-based dance company will perform Identity as part of a Victoria/New South Wales tour.
Artistic director Annie Greig said it was a progression of the original show which was performed in venues around Tasmania in 2009.
“The audience is going to be surprised at what it’s going to see,” she said.
“It’s something quite different. Contemporary dance is a physical art form.
“This is about getting our work out to audiences ... if it reminds you of something, makes you feel in some way, that’s great.”
Identity, the brainchild of Tasdance choreographers Frances Rings and Anton, is based around two pieces exploring concepts of identity. An ensemble of six uses screens to depict a busy modern society in Anton’s The Blur, and weave yarn and imagery to explore ancestry and personal influences in Frances Rings’ Remembered Of Us.
Ms Greig said the group had developed as a “unit” since it started working on the show three months ago.
Tasdance was a popular instalment to Warrnambool’s 2009 theatre season when it performed One for Sorrow, Two for Joy.
