Witness daring athleticism and high-powered choreography in a new dance work that dramatically swings between harmony and havoc.
Choreographed by Gabrielle Nankivell and sound designed by Luke Smiles, watch as five dancers embody the hypnotic paradox of beauty and violence that rages within the elements; igniting our senses, wrestling with our temperaments and wreaking havoc on our imagination.
Created especially for this 360 degree stage and set to an arresting soundscape, Surge pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance.
