present

Virtually  Richard  III

at the Nambour Civic Centre on Saturday 13th May at 8pm.

Expressions is acclaimed for its compelling brand of dance theatre and Virtually Richard III is high-octane dance at its best inspired by one of Shakespeare's most powerful works, Richard III. 

A classic example of an attractive wicked rogue, Richard has no need of love or pity - he is completely self-centred and cares for no one.  He lusts after danger, excitement and personal power.  Cruel and deceitful, he chooses to be a villain and revels in his choice.

Virtually Richard III is a treat for those who like their dance theatre fast and physical.  From mesmerizing solos to whirling ensemble dances, the work exploits powerful imagery to uncover our deepest hopes and fears.

This is a performance that holds great power.  Sydney Morning Herald 20/6/2003

Virtually Richard III is truly great, alarming and rousing theatre.  We are left in amazement and admiration.  CEST, Stuttgart (Germany).  30/6/2002
