About the Show
Following sold out seasons in 2019, Projection Dance Company have a one night run of Tim Podesta’s Closer at the Southbank Theatre. Closer explores the theory of 'catastrophic thinking', juxtaposing the pursuit for human perfection against the increasingly evident frailty of our existence. Podesta’s creative process stretches the dancers physically and psychologically, taking risks and exploring their limitations as dancers and artists. The choreography is simultaneously bold and fragile drawing on Podesta’s original contemporary but strongly classically influenced vocabulary.
Featuring a stellar cast of international and Australian dancers including James Pett and Travis Clausen-Knight (formerly Company Wayne McGregor) and Kristy-Lee Denovan (formerly Australian Ballet, Melbourne Ballet) Closer will showcase the brilliance of the dancers and take audiences on a journey that reaches past traditional boundaries to find new possibilities in dance.
