Joyce Theater

The astonishingly powerful Australian Dance Theatre presents a beguiling exploration of the natural world in The Beginning of Nature. This compelling work possesses a hypnotic score sung in Kaurna, the first language of the Adelaide Plains, where the company resides. At times fierce and explosive and at others graceful and meditative, this evocative depiction of the complex rhythms in nature will delight and inspire as it elucidates humanity’s evolving relationship with nature.

Part of a two-week celebration of Australian dance.

Curtain Chat: Sat, May 4 after the 2pm performance
