The Beginning of Nature World Premiere at WOMADelaide 2016Thursday, September 24, 2015
The WOMADelaide Festival 2016 today announced the first lineup for 2016, featuring the World Premiere of Garry Stewart’s latest piece The Beginning of Nature.
The Beginning of Nature, is a 40-minute dance and music performance based upon the idea of rhythms in nature. Humans – and all living forms – exist within a phenomenally complex symphony of overlapping rhythms that constitute the very fabric of nature and life itself. These rhythms are manifested in day and night, the seasons, tidal patterns, migration, hibernation, sleep and waking, weather patterns, the binary of growth and decay and the various systems of the body.
The music will be composed by Brendan Woithe who has has created the sound for many of ADT’s internationally renowned touring works. For The Beginning of Nature, Australian Dance Theatre have collaborated with the celebrated Zephyr Quartet to bring you this stunning new Australian dance work.
