For centuries we have used dance to connect, seduce and play – from the masked ball to the mosh pit.
PUNCTURE invites the audience to embrace the risk of intimacy in a crowded room, from the restraint and formality of classical dance through to the sensuality of the tango and the rebellion of youth.
Stefan Gregory’s score, inspired by the great songwriters, from Monteverdi to Madonna, is sung live by a 30-voice choir, accompanied by renowned percussionist Bree van Reyk. They take to the dance floor with 12 young dancers led by two of Australia’s finest dance artists, Kristina Chan and Joshua Thomson.
