This June, Australian Dance Theatre is bringing renowned Artistic Director Garry Stewart’s award-winning* South to regional South Australian theatres. Audiences in Whyalla and Renmark will finally have the opportunity to see the work that Dance Australia called “utterly compelling“, and which The Adelaide Review acclaimed as “fascinating and thought-provoking”. An intense yet meditative and deeply moving reflection on the treacherous journey across the wilds of eastern Antarctica undertaken by South Australian explorer Sir Douglas Mawson and his ill-fated team in 1913, South depicts Mawson’s perilous voyage as an allegory for our current predicament in an era of rapid global warming. Stewart’s choreography perfectly captures the despair of Mawson and his crew as they battle the elements of Antarctica’s alien and forbidding landscape. Featuring ten incredible dancers who display “spectacular, even transcendent, athleticism” (Witness Performance), South is an unmissable work full of beauty, power and pathos. South will be performed live following a screening of ADT’s multi-award-winning, visually spellbinding short film, The Circadian Cycle, directed by Garry Stewart. This stunning film has captivated audiences across the globe, from New York, Los Angeles and Toronto to Athens, Moscow and, closer to home, Adelaide. * Winner of Outstanding Achievement in Choreography (Garry Stewart for South) in 2019 at the Australian Dance Awards, presented by AusDance Warning: South contains nudity and is recommended for audiences 14+. Haze is featured intermittently throughout the performance. Image supplied by Daniel Boud ©

Nearing the end of his extraordinary, culture-clashing life, the great Australian actor David Gulpilil performs one last time. Engaging with the camera as never before, he calls upon his electrifying, mesmerising screen presence to connect with what is for him, his final audience. Gulpilil shows us what it was to live a dizzying mix of traditional Aboriginal ways and modern Hollywood excess. He reminisces about his films, from Storm Boy and Crocodile Dundee to Rabbit Proof Fence and Charlie’s Country, and the effects of his fame on a tribal boy from Arnhem Land. He explores his worlds of acting, of dancing, and painting…and what it is to stare down death. But life interferes with David’s march towards his personal end…in his words, “I should have been dead long time ago!” In this, his final film, the great Australian actor David Gulpilil shows what a survivor he is, and he how came to be the living legend we know him to be.

She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute. But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
