Dancer. Percussionist. Rivals. A strange and mesmeric double act.
Three-time APRA Art Music Award winning percussionist, Claire Edwardes, and Helpmann Award winning dancer, Richard Cilli, unite their distinct talents to create an intriguing double-act, in collaboration with acclaimed choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and composer Paul Mac.
From formal beginnings into virtuosic performance and competitive play, Claire and Richard come together to create a larger mesmeric experience.
Set in the orthodox world of a music and dance recital, the outcomes are impressive, disturbing and wildly ecstatic.
“On stage Richard Cilli looks like he was born to dance. His fluid, rippling style is eminently watchable.’ – Nina Levy, Dance Australia.
“To say (Claire Edwardes) is virtuosic is redundant; she’s more, transforming what must clearly look promising on manuscript paper into sonorous, shimmering aural opulence.” – Australian Stage
