Prepare to be swept off your feet when one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies, Dancenorth, brings its explosive and transcendent production, Wayfinder, to the Gold Coast.
Dubbed ‘a tonic of the times’, Wayfinder combines physical exuberance, sonic resonance, and collective exhilaration to create an explosive, kaleidoscopic fusion of dance, music, and visual art.
Directed by Amber Haines and Kyle Page, Wayfinder sees Dancenorth Australia join forces with three-time Grammy nominated Australian band Hiatus Kaiyote and sound artist Byron J. Scullin to create a soaring composition, evoking pleasure and possibility. An undulating sound sculpture condenses and expands this scintillating score, immersing audiences in a new sonic dimension. Japanese-Australian visual artist Hiromi Tango offers her joyful, heart-expanding artwork to both the stage design and costumes for this sublime new performance, featuring lighting design by Niklas Pajanti. Navigating bigger and more ancient reference points, Wayfinder recognises connection as the central axis of the universe. By the stars, the waves, and the sun, we find our way.
