Choreographed by Adelaide-born Australian Dance Theatre dancer Daniel Jaber, Nought is an experiential performance where the audience is taken through a process of discovery, ending with a poignant insight into the dancing body and the dancer’s fragility.
The work has periods of silence, mixed with beautiful music and spoken words to emphasise the dancers’ vulnerabilities, exposing contemporary dance in its purest form.
Nought features elegant and beautifully delicate costumes designed by talented local fashion designer Catherine Ziersch and sound by Swiss-born Thomas Jeker.
Nought will be presented in an art gallery space – a first for the company under Garry Stewart’s directorship. This non-theatre space will place the audience in close proximity to the extraordinary dancers of Australian Dance Theatre and will provide a rare opportunity to see great dance in an unusually intimate context.
Samstag Museum of Art, North Terrace, Adelaide
Season: 25 – 27 September 2013
