Weaving together live music and astonishingly powerful contemporary dance, The Beginning of Nature is a compelling and ritualistic work from world-renowned Australian Dance Theatre. Grace and strength combine in this work to create an evocative depiction of the complex symphony of rhythms in nature, that will leave audiences entranced. Portrayed by the nine stellar dancers of ADT, this extraordinary work explores life cycles and themes of metamorphosis and transformation within nature. With live accompaniment by a string quartet and two vocalists, the spell-binding score combines electronica, strings and a libretto sung in Kaurna language, the first language of the Adelaide Plains, home to ADT. At times fierce and explosive, at other times graceful and meditative, this stunning work will delight and inspire. The Beginning of Nature is a tour-de-force from one of the world’s most formidable companies, and is sure to become another seminal work for Australian Dance Theatre. ADT respectfully acknowledges the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and pays respect to Elders past and present. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. Australian Dance Theatre is supported by the Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
