A collision of circus and culture that interrogates harmony and conflict to find a Common Dissonance.

For thousands of years in Australia, understanding of the world came from Dreamtime stories song lines, and oral histories. In a 21st century world, the hypocrisies of a culturally diverse past lingers in the wake of a globalised present.

Common Dissonance explores this complexity in a moving contemporary circus work. Two performers, with shared and distinctly individual experiences, create a physical dialogue to seek balance, community, exchange, unity and diversity.

In a world where it is common to believe in both spirituality and science – how can we navigate between harmony, conflict and the complex dialogues that consume contemporary culture to find a Common Dissonance?

Following a highly successful, Greenroom Award nominated season at The Melba Spiegeltent and an award-winning season at the 2022 Adelaide Fringe, this beautifully choreographed First Nations work showcases some of the best Australia has to offer in contemporary dance and circus.
