REFLECTIONS  |  A 10 Year Retrospective

A decade of dance by Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre. ONE NIGHT ONLY!!
If you know SPRUNG!!, you’ll know they perform to sell-out crowds.
Do not miss this exceptional production which showcases the best of the best of ten years of dance, curated by Artistic Director Michael Hennessy (formerly of Sydney Dance Co).
Reflections: A 10 Year Retrospective serves as both a mirror and a window. An intentional and lovingly curated body of high production value works as well as an extensive photographic and cinematic exhibition capturing SPRUNG’S story across the years.

This retrospective is not baked in nostalgia, they are strong works, the best of what we’ve  done.”

Reflections has been such an enjoyable and personal process. Genuine pride and satisfaction came from reflecting and realising how truly collaborative these years have been.”
Michael Hennessy, SPRUNG!! Art Director

Looking back invites one to look forward. Where have we come from, what did we have to say 5 years ago, 10 years ago, how is that different to now? What can we hope for, work towards, need and desire. What holds meaning?

This retrospective traverses landscapes of people, time and place. SPRUNG!! is the embodiment of diverse voices exploring what it is to exist and co-exist in modern day Australia.

As you observe the gallery and SPRUNG!!’s ensemble dancing through a decade, do not be surprised if you also begin to look at yourself.

This retrospective enlivens diverse voices in Australia – beyond ability and disability, there is simply – human.  You can expect a gamut of emotion: courage, surprise, contempt, frustration, shame, joy, curiosity and more.

“SPRUNG!! has a history of celebrating artistic expression and a heritage that we will
continue to build upon as the next decade unfolds. We are committed to making contemporary, collaborative meaningful, mindful art
.”
Vanessa Kellas, SPRUNG!! Producer

Despite our collective differences, what SPRUNG!! really shows through performance and multimedia is how similar we really are. These times have been said by sociologists to be one of the loneliest; we are more disconnected and isolated than ever.

Never has there been a more important time to come together and listen; embracing diversity builds stronger societies.”
Robyn Brady, SPRUNG!! Co-founder

Reflections: A 10 Year Retrospective is an evening of dance and multi media with true artistic merit. SPRUNG!! has been recognised for dance excellence having twice been a finalist in the Australian Dance Awards.

“At the Australian Dance Awards ceremony in October 2019, Sprung!! performed a pas de deux – and you could have heard a pin drop. These performers and their commitment to everything: artistic process, life, one another – get under your skin like nothing else.”
Robyn Brady – SPRUNG!! Co-founder

“The Northern Rivers has a history of nurturing creative talents, especially in the disability community and Sprung!! has been a very formative part of that.”
Emma Newman, SPRUNG!! Administrator

If you love dance, or even if you just love a great story join the Sprung!!’s ensemble as they dance their way across a decade of incredibly rich works.

Prepare to be moved.

The Circus is in town and it is action packed

 

By Samantha Elley

Put your expectations away and open your mind to the ‘edge of your seat’ experience you will be in for when you go to see The Circus in Coffs Harbour.

“We are a seventh generation circus family, originally from Germany,” said tour manager and matriarch, Marie Weber.

“We bring acts that have never been seen under the big top in Australia before.

“These include FMX (freestyle) riders, the splitting globe of death, comedians, aerialists and even a human cannonball.”

Patriarch, Harry Weber, has been involved in the circus touring life for the past 40 years and the family are excited to be in Australia.

“We have been touring in New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and other international areas,” said Marie.

That’s no mean feat with a family of eight children who have all grown up with the circus.

“We have performers from all walks of life,” said Marie.

“There are about 40 crew and performers, including those travelling with families.”

Marie said they are all like one big happy family, especially when they have been working so closely together for so long.

“Most of us have been working together for more than 10 years,” she said.

The Circus has just wound up six shows at Lismore Showgrounds and is now heading to Coffs Harbour where they have a giveaway on their Facebook page ‘Weber Bros Entertainment’ for two VIP packages and 10 double passes to their shows.

They will be performing their action packed shows at Coffs Harbour Showground between June 6th – 16th.

Book your tickets at 0452003300 or online at iticket.com.au for two hours of great family entertainment. Prices range from $35 – $85 for adults and $25-$70 for children.

Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When – 8-17 of August
  • Where – QPAC
  • Price – from $59
  • TicketsAvailable here.
