A dancer and a musician meet for the first time – over Zoom. Together, they dream up a project that merges their creative visions. Into their microphones they ask: “Where do we start?”
From there, the conversation continues, resulting in a celebration of human connectedness and the joy of live performance from lutruwita/Tasmania’s own Tasdance. Four new duets from four creative collaborations forged during periods of social isolation will premiere in the lush surrounds of the Tamar Valley.
Tasdance performers led by Adam Wheeler have been paired with a drummer, a saxophonist, an opera singer and a harpist to create an intimate and evocative live performance experience enhanced by the beautiful acoustics of Rowella’s historic wooden hall.
