TONIC by KAGE Dance Theatre at Burrinja

03 9754 8723

12 Oct 2017

A new work by KAGE inspired by the forces at play in the Yarra Ranges, TONIC is a dance-based theatrical reflection on our sense of home.

Tonic will be developed in their creative spaces over three months, then premiered in October at the finest performance venues.

Kate and Gerard specialise in collaborating with extraordinary artists and communities to find original ways to present dance in new contexts, creating exquisite performances which harness the dramatic potential of dance and extreme physicality with irreverence and humour.

Through the use of choreography and soundscape, Kate and Gerard will create and perform a duet which chronicles the relationship that humans and animals have to their sense of home. Inspired by the preservation of ecosystems within the Yarra Ranges, Tonic explores the implicit relationship we all have to the health of our environment.

Proudly funded and supported by Yarra Ranges Council and Burrinja Cultural Centre.
