AUSTRALIAN DANCE THEATRE PREMIERES MULTIVERSE IN ADELAIDE

Friday, October 25, 2013

Australian Dance Theatre will again break new boundaries with the world premiere of Garry Stewart’s Multiverse whereby visually stunning 3D graphics will share the stage with three phenomenal dancers to create one of the first 3D works by an Australian dance company.

Conceived, directed and choreographed by Garry Stewart, the one hour production has been created following his role as “Thinker in Residence” at Deakin University.

The work is based on ideas from theoretical physics. Multiverse creates extraordinary images that delve into bizarre notions such as string theory, parallel dimensions, multiple universes and black holes: ideas that are at the center of current thinking into how we understand the universe.

Australian Dance Theatre in association with Adelaide Festival Centre will premiere the work next year at the Space Theatre. Tickets are on sale now at BASS (www.bass.net.au).

9 – 12 July, 2014, Space Theatre, Adelaide Festival Centre
Tickets from $24. Four shows only.
