Nat Cursio Co
Remember pushing aside the loungeroom furniture and ripping out some wild and crazy moves?
With a Bullet sees a dynamic bunch of choreographers recall the first song to which they ever made up a dance, re-imagining this song to create a totally new piece of choreography.
Creator Nat Cursio (VIC) in cahoots with her long-time colleague and co-curator Shona Erskine (WA) are offering this nostalgic yet subversive creative challenge, started in Melbourne in 2006, to the dance-makers of Perth for the first time.
With music ranging from infectious 80s anthems to obscure electronica, the dance works in this bold new compilation of ‘hit singles’ are diverse. Each reflects the choreographer’s quirky personal stories and particular movement styles, and reveals a little about their fascinating (and occasionally embarrassing) histories.
With a Bullet – Perth Edition choreographers and dancers include: Michael Whaites, Sam Fox, Aimee Smith, Jacob Lehrer, Kynan Hughes, Shona Erskine and Rachel Ogle and more. Discover this suite of short sharp works while reliving your own days of stereo-cranked dancing glory!
“Once in a while there comes a show that speaks to everyone, whatever your thoughts on dance…utterly enjoyable.” – BEAT MAGAZINE 2006.
