In Difference is a deeply personal, physical investigation into sexuality, identity and inequality.
Acclaimed dance artist Craig Bary brings together an exceptional artistic team to confront the politically-charged marriage equality debate through tenderness and empathy. Using a delicate blend of breathtaking choreography and intricate narrative, the work travels through the heartaches and triumphs that are intrinsic in the human pursuit for connection. For every human.
What is actually different about same sex relationships? Are we conditioned to view sexuality in particular ways? Is this a question of fundamental human rights?
“Marriage equality is a real issue for real people so we are making this work for them, and hope to make a significant contribution to the debate in the most creative and inspiring way,’ said Bary. ‘We will also bring the real life of the performers on stage to create a compelling, vulnerable and open environment for the audiences to connect with.”
In Difference will transport audiences through true and powerful moments of love, life, partnership, heartache, drama and joy. It is a vital and timely work, augmenting the idea that dance can communicate important issues and make an impact socially and politically.
