VERGE Tiny dancers

Fans of dance won’t want to miss this. Verge, running from November 16 to 23 in WAAPA’s Geoff Gibbs Theatre, features three contemporary dance pieces and a montage of classical ballet scenes from Coppélia, choreographed by international, interstate and local choreographers.

A contemporary dance piece performed by WAAPA’s graduating dancers, right on the verge of their professional careers, they’ll celebrate their final season as students in a dazzling display of technical skill, versatility and passionate performance.

Audiences will enjoy an original contemporary work by Helder Seabra, a Belgium-based choreographer and former dancer with Wim Vandekeybus and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Meanwhile Helpmann-award winning dancer, choreographer and film maker Cass Mortimer Eipper, formerly of Sydney Dance Company and West Australian Ballet, premieres his new piece Black Gold.

Australian dancer and performer Delia Silvan, whose distinguished performance career includes being a founding member of Leigh Warren & Dancers (LWD), is remounting Shimmer, which won Warren an Australian Dance Award for Outstanding Achievement in Choreography. These three visiting guest choreographers are joined by WAAPA’s Coordinator of Classical Ballet, Kim McCarthy.

Verge will run from 16 to 23 November, 2019 in WAAPA’s Geoff Gibbs Theatre. Tickets from purchase.tickets.com.
