Wonder Grit throws contemporary dance at competitive cycling to investigate the nature of loss, injury and motivation in times of uncertainty. The show is an energetic two-hander packed with killer dancing, survival tips and Adelaide’s most strenuous monologue. Featuring crowd sourced data, a deadly treadly, and two women with a tonne of experience, Wonder Grit might just be a ride you won’t want to get off.

Choreography and Direction: Lewis Major

Dramaturgy: Amanda Phillips

Satori is a Japanese term for awakening. This work explores the states of impermanence and imperfection through an ensemble dance work with stellar dancers. The interconnecting elements transform into a fluidly shifting atmosphere and stage architecture that continually collide, collapse and create.

Dance Hub SA acknowledges the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.
