Event Details

Presented by Australasian Dance Collective
Dance Performance 

Intriguing, diverse and beautiful, ‘Echo’ is a compelling and dynamic double bill presented by ADC’s talented Youth Ensemble.

Featuring two new creations by emerging makers, Katina Olsen and Lauren Graham, ‘Echo’ features the 27 talented dancers of the Australasian Dance Collective’s Youth Ensemble.

The live dance performances sit side by side with powerful and extraordinary film works created by the youth ensemble members.

A proud Wakka Wakka Kombumerri woman, Olsen’s choreographic highlights include ‘Mother’s Cry’ for Sydney Dance Company’s New Breed 2018, movement direction for the play ‘Sunshine Super Girl’ (Sydney Festival 2021), the ABC series ‘Cleverman 2’ and the Malthouse production ‘Walking into the Bigness’.

With a sombre layer of honesty and simplistic beauty, her creation for ‘Echo is drenched in subtle gestures of communication and connections that draw us to our land and humanity.

Graham is a QUT Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship recipient, and has worked with many artists including Natalie Weir, Daniel Riley and Craig Barry and appeared in Nerida Matthaei’s regional tour of ‘Angel-Monster’, collaborating in developments of Liesel Zink’s ‘The Stance’ and ‘Circa’s Leviathan’.

With an undercurrent of hypnotic drive, her ‘Echo’ piece pulses to intrude on its own intricate hum. ‘Echo’ is a key platform in ADC’s commitment to actively developing and inspiring the next generation of dancers and dance makers. It is a chance to see the art of the future, right now as the creative leaders of tomorrow showcase what an exciting and vibrant future awaits.
