In Difference

Riverside Theatres Parramatta Form Dance Projects In Difference - photo by Matt CornellA deeply personal and physical investigation into sexuality, identity and inequality, FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres present the dance theatre production, In Difference in the Lennox Theatre: 2 – 4 March 2017.

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.

Bary, alongside co-creators and performers Kristina Chan, Timothy Ohl and Joshua Thomson, will represent two real life couples of both homosexual and heterosexual orientation. Through a series of ordinary and extraordinary everyday life moments, the work will explore how we interact and express ourselves no matter what our sexual orientation.

“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.
