Live Event

Riverside presents Dancenorth
Created by Amber Haines and Kyle Page

Enter a space of tangled imagination, where light and sound collide in a familiar yet distant world. Creatures from afar morph within the shadows to navigate an ever-changing landscape of bewilderment and wonder. Synesthesia envelopes the mind as rhythm becomes vision, voice shapes movement and light warps sound. Welcome to the world of Rainbow Vomit, a place where anything is possible, everything can happen, and much more than colour erupts from the darkness.

Rainbow Vomit is an interactive, eye-popping dance show that will delight the entire family. Audience members are invited to watch the performance through their own pair of kaleidoscopic fireworks glasses. These magical glasses are made using holographic diffraction film, which refracts light into all colours of the spectrum, generating a myriad of rainbows.

Suitable for: Ages 6+ and their families

When we found a show that combines UV rope, holographic ‘firework’ glasses, exciting choreography and unicorns, we just had to have it! Your students will hurl with excitement at this unique production. The best thing about this show is not only that it is amazing, but that the learning potential extends beyond CAPA and into the science lab as a great example of how light works.
