The Host

EDC_The Host_Jack ZiesingCombining gripping dance theatre with a touch of explosive fun, Expressions Dance Company presents the world premiere of Natalie Weir’s The Host at the Cremorne Theatre, QPAC for a limited season from 1 May 2015.

An elegant dinner party hosted by an influential young man for his manipulative guests is thrown into turmoil when power meets greed, ambition and jealousy. As the evening wears on The Host exposes society’s insatiable desire for control and status and the power play between the guests intensifies as the accusations start to fly.

Who really holds the power at this sophisticated table? And who will be in control by the time coffee is served? The Host will take you on a thrilling ride through the lifestyles of the power hungry.

You will be struck by the luscious design, including dazzling costumes by Brisbane-based fashion designer Gail Sorronda, the live music performed by Southern Cross Soloists and the enduring story told by multiple award-winning choreographer, Natalie Weir in this world premiere production.

The Host will be a highly visual feast for the senses, with modern, high fashion costumes and an exciting, fast moving story. You’ll have never been to a dinner party like this before!” said Ms Weir.
