BUT WHY Mortimer Eipper / Forté Austinmer Dance Theatre’s 2019 performance year click’s into gear with this impressive double bill featuring the work of former Sydney Dance Company Dancer, Cass Mortimer Eipper and Artistic Director, Michelle Forté.

Mortimer Eipper’s, Pastiching Tetsuo, is a Westerner’s tribute to the Japanese practice of Anime. A reworked, reinterpreted mix and match of some of Japan’s most influential pop-cultured artefacts, Mortimer Eipper’s work aims to shape new worlds that are familiar but unique and discordant yet structured.

While Forté’s, Life Interrupted, explores the Australian Women’s prison system and the effects of incarceration on the greater community. Constantly challenging the creativity of herself and her dancers, Forté delves further into the use of text combined with abstract dance to generate a unique theatre experience. Suitable for all ages, audiences can expect to be taken on a memorable journey which explores the power of dance and theatre, with both pieces bringing their own unique creative stamp.
