FEATURING JUN TIAN FANG MUSIC ENSEMBLE / DANCENORTH AUSTRALIA / BEIJING DANCE THEATRE
★★★★★ - “A collaboration of staggering ambition, realised with a level of finesse that makes it a privilege to experience.” - The Music
★★★★ - “The music is wonderfully meditative and layered ... [One Infinity] explores how sound, dance and ritual can create a shared fulfilment.” - The Age
Sound and movement combine to create the hypnotic and meditative ritual One Infinity. Inspired by a Chinese ancient tale, this cross-cultural collaboration brings eastern and western traditions together for a shared experience of beauty and contemplation.
When Australian recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey spent time with guqin master Wang Peng of Beijing’s Jun Tian Fang Music Ensemble, neither could have imagined what extraordinary work they would create together. Adding director and choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and composer Max de Wardener to the process led to the creation of a transformative immersion in music and dance.
One Infinity is an entirely new experience. What begins as a concert of hauntingly beautiful music soon reveals another dimension, as dancers from Beijing Dance Theatre and Dancenorth Australia echo the sounds with their gently shifting bodies. Masterful choreography and everyday movement, ritual and improvisation, nature and civilisation are all driven into a state of flux in this stunning immersive experience.
One Infinity will be presented once again at both Sydney Festival 2019 and Perth Festival 2019.
