RECITAL- PERFORMANCES & MASTERCLASS
RICHARD CILLI & CLAIRE EDWARDES (AUSTRALIA)
FORM DANCE PROJECTS AND
RIVERSIDE THEATRES PRESENT
DANCE BITES 2019
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 virtuosic talents in an unusual presentation of how movement sounds, and how sound moves.
From formal beginnings into virtuosic performance and competitive play, Edwardes and Cilli collaborate with acclaimed director and choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and Australia’s leading electro-pop composer Paul Mac to create an intriguing display.
Set in the orthodox world of a music and dance recital, the ambiguous relationship between the two performers intensifies. 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
