A Contemporary Double Act
One of Australia's most dynamic and internationally recognized contemporary dance companies, Expressions Dance Company, is touring a double-act of innovative and energized dance throughout Queensland this October.
Presented by Queensland Arts Council's Ontour onstage and Expressions Dance Company, this mesmerizing double bill performance comprising Jigsaw, created by one of Queensland's most talented choreographers Natalie Weir, and Fragments of Memory created by international choreographer and former dancer with the world renowned Cloud Gate Dance Company, Cheng Tsung Lung.
Queensland Arts Council's Ontour onstage Manager Jane Atkins said the program will captivate audiences with its powerful style of dance.
"Expressions Dance Company transforms dance into intimate story telling with their amazing physical abilities and talent," said Ms Atkins. "It is absolutely mind-blowing."
Brisbane's The Courier-Mail raved about the performance printing:
Dance is such an ephemeral art form, yet it has the power to create lasting imprints in our minds.  That capacity is demonstrated in the aptly titled double bill from Expressions. The result is rewarding for both the audience and the dancers.
The Company's outstanding mix of dance, theatre and music received an exceptional response from audiences and critics when it performed in New York and China, with Backstage - New York quoting, "An evening of remarkable ingenuity… a dazzling tour de force."
The first half of the show, Jigsaw, explores how certain phobias including claustrophobia, the fear of venturing outside, the fear of being noticed and the fear of intimacy, can affect our personal relationships.
Fragments of Memory is a dynamic, contemporary, physically powerful piece of dance driven by pulsing undercurrents of emotions.
Expression Dance Company is conducting free workshops for ticket holders in classical and modern dance techniques and composition, as well as movement classes. Dance schools, high schools or community groups wishing to participate in workshops are to contact Expressions Dance Company on 07 3257 4222 or email expressionsdance@bigpond.com.

The tour is assisted by Arts Regional Touring Service (ARTS), a Queensland Government initiative.
