Matrix – a cultural, social or political environment or context in which something develops.
Expressions Dance Company collaborates with Beijing Dance/LDTX, one of China’s leading contemporary dance companies, to present an exhilarating double bill, Matrix.
Using social, political and cultural matrixes as their inspiration, this performance will feature brand-new works by two of Australasia’s leading female choreographers: the highly acclaimed Chinese choreographer MA Bo, and multi award winning Australian choreographer Stephanie Lake.
MA Bo and Stephanie will work with an extraordinary team of Australian and Chinese creatives to frame this premiere season with new designs and scores while EDC’s six ensemble members will be joined by the 14-strong company of LDTX dancers to fill the QPAC Playhouse stage in a dazzling and virtuosic display of contemporary dance.
Following on from the highly acclaimed performances, Black (with Guangdong Modern Dance Company, 2016) and 4Seasons (with Hong Kong’s City Contemporary Dance Company, 2018), Matrix is the latest component of EDC’s groundbreaking Chinese Australian Dance Exchange Project (CADEP), involving three of China’s foremost contemporary dance companies.
Matrix will reach audiences from Brisbane and Sydney to Tianjin, Hong Kong and Beijing. Don’t miss this meeting of cross-cultural creative philosophies, side-by-side in this ambitious, thought-provoking and visually arresting performance.
