Austinmer Dance Theatre – But Why

28 - 29 Jun

A memorable journey of dance and theatre by Mortimer Eipper / Forté

Austinmer Dance Theatre’s 2019 performance year clicks into gear with this impressive double bill featuring the work of former Sydney Dance Company dancer Cass Mortimer Eipper and Artistic Director Michelle Forté. Each piece brings its own unique creative stamp to this team of fourteen strong, contemporary dancers all between the ages of 17-25 years.

Mortimer Eipper’s, Pastiching Tetsuo, is a Westerner’s tribute to the Japanese practice of Anime. A reworked, reinterpreted mix and match of some of Japan’s most influential pop-cultured artefacts, Mortimer Eipper’s work aims to shape new worlds that are familiar but unique and discordant yet structured.

While Forté’s, Life Interrupted, explores the Australian Women’s prison system and the effects of incarceration on the greater community. Constantly challenging the creativity of herself and her dancers, Forté delves further into the use of text combined with abstract dance to generate a unique theatre experience.

Suitable for all ages, audiences can expect to be taken on a memorable journey which embraces the magic of dance and theatre all in the one production.
