Set against the backdrop of Australian history from the 1950s to today, Everyday Requiem is a powerful story of one ordinary man (acclaimed Brisbane performer Brian Lucas) as he revisits the memories that have created the remarkable and relatable tale of his life – and ours.
Touching moments from our daily lives are interpreted through the breathtaking physicality of the EDC dancers, choreographed by EDC’s Helpmann Award-winning Artistic Director, Natalie Weir.
The Australian Voices join EDC on stage, performing an exquisite original score by Gordon Hamilton, using only the human voice. The cast also features special guests, senior dancers from WaW Dance, in this inspiring celebration of the tragedies and triumphs we all share, everyday.
Everyday Requiem is Natalie Weir’s final work for the Company as Artistic Director. Following critically acclaimed productions such as When Time Stops, The Red Shoes, Behind Closed Doors and the recent highly acclaimed, 4Seasons, Natalie Weir’s Everyday Requiem is not to be missed.
