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 Adoring Anime delves into the art form of anime and the unique qualities of this hand-drawn and computer animation originating from or associated with Japan.

While Forté’s 5yrs, 3mths & 27 days explores the Australian women’s prison system and the effects incarceration has on the greater community. Forté, constantly challenging the creativity of herself and her dancers, delves further into the use of live verbatim smartly combined with abstract and representational 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.

8PM Friday 28 June & 8PM Saturday 29 June
