Expressions Dance Company launched their 2014 season last night on stage at QPAC’s Concert Hall. That’s right. We joined the company on the stage, gathering early for social pics and drinks and all that stuff, and right on cue, as the lights changed dramatically, we moved back around the edges to allow current company dancers to move in exquisitely controlled slow motion across the space. It was a suitably dramatic opening preceding heart warming speeches that celebrated the company’s success over thirty years and looked to the future.

EDC’s 2014 program features three home seasons and a tour, including the world premiere of Artistic Director Natalie Weir’s new signature work The Red Shoes, and the return of Australia’s only solo dance festival.

SOLO is dance nourishment for the soul; a tantalising menu curated by Natalie Weir to showcase individual dancers and choreographers in an evening of beautiful artistry and bravura. Produced in association with QPAC & featuring artists from –

Expressions Dance Company (Brisbane)
The Australian Ballet (Melbourne)
Australian Dance Theatre (Adelaide)
Chunky Move (Melbourne)
Dancenorth (Townsville)
Shaun Parker & Company (Sydney)
And Australia’s brightest independents

“As we enter EDC’s 30th-year-anniversary of commitment to producing and showcasing exceptional dance, we thought it the opportune time to bring back some of the company’s most-loved works from recent years, alongside a major new signature work and a contemporary dance festival,” Artistic Director Natalie Weir said. It’s Weir’s sixth year at the company, and her fifth as AD – she shows no signs of slowing down but rather, a fierce determination to take the company to the world!
