I'm Trying Not to Sweat the Small Stuff - Emma Saunders

Emma Saunders’, I’m trying Not to Sweat The Small Stuff is a 15 minute new dance work for the stage. It is innovative and experimental through its intersection between process and product. The process has involved thinking around what the current climate of COVID has made us feel and how we can create a container for communication around those feelings through movement. A co-creator of Sydney based dance trio – The Fondue Set, well known for their theatricality and comedic style. Emma’s work brings a fresh new perspective to our 2021 season.

Connected Disconnect – Rhiannon Davies

Former company member Rhiannon Davies returns to create her first piece as part of the main season. Well known for her stunning work regularly featured as part of the annual uNCOILEd productions, we are thrilled to welcome Rhiannon to the main stage with her piece Connected Disconnect. Predominantly created online, the process of the work emulated the disconnection human beings experience when communication in hindered. Our existence relies on real human connection, yet despite living in a time where we are more connected, we are more disconnected than ever. Without true communication and understanding of one another, we cannot truly feel seen, heard or valued.

S I F T I N G - Michelle Maxwell

You have been offered “the gift of crisis”.
The Greek root of the word ‘crisis’ is “to sift”, as in to shake out the excesses and leave only what’s important. That’s what crises do. They shake things up until we are forced to hold on to what matters most, the rest falls away. – Glennon Doyle Melton

Featuring a cast of former company members, returning for this 10th – anniversary production, S I F T I N G embodies the many layers, challenges, highs, and lows which has contributed to where ADT sit in their 10th year. Sifting through what seems like a creative jungle at times, this collaborative piece brings together the cast’s and creators’ skills and talents, arriving at the final result for you, our audience.
