Premiering to rave reviews in 2016, The Dinner Party, a gripping contemporary dance theatre from the award-winning Expressions Dance Company will be gracing the Riverside Theatres stage this June. This will be the only Sydney performance included in the production’s national tour.
An elegant dinner party hosted by an influential young man is thrown into turmoil when power meets greed, ambition and jealousy. As the evening wears on, society’s insatiable desire for control and status is exposed, and the power-play between the manipulative guests intensifies. Who really holds the power at this sophisticated table? And who will be in control by the time coffee is served?
Nominated for two Australian Dance Awards in 2016 and created by former Expressions Dance Company Artistic Director, world-renowned choreographer, Natalie Weir, The Dinner Party is a breathtaking exploration of the human psyche and the greed that exposes the not-so-beautiful in society’s beautiful people.
With sharp, daring choreography, sublime costumes and original music, The Dinner Party is a sumptuous and thrilling feast for the senses, delivered by one of the country’s most innovative dance companies.
