Dates 05 April - 06 April 2013

This double-bill of very accessible and playful contemporary dance showcases works from two of Australia’s shining examples of contemporary dance; Tanja Liedtke’s Enter Twilight and the world premiere season of Byron Perry’s Light Entertainment.

Choreographed for the company in 2004, Liedtke’s work examines the balance between opposites; light and dark, virtuous and evil. An extraordinary talent whose life was tragically cut short, Liedtke was destined to follow in the footsteps of Tasdance Patron, Graeme Murphy AO, as the next Artistic Director of Sydney Dance Company. Inclusion of Liedtke’s work in our 2013 program honours her ongoing positive influence on dance in Australia.

Taking an alternative interpretation, award-winning choreographer, Perry, explores other connotations of “light,” flipping between dry and scientific, magic and mystical, frivolous, playful and entertaining. Playing with the theatrically and multiplicity of meanings, Perry’s work illuminated the astonishing talents of the Tasdance ensemble.
