GARRY STEWART'S "SOUTH" by Australian Dance Theatre

18 Jun 2021

This June, Australian Dance Theatre is bringing renowned Artistic Director Garry Stewart’s award-winning* South to regional South Australian theatres.

Audiences in Whyalla and Renmark will finally have the opportunity to see the work that Dance Australia called “utterly compelling“, and which The Adelaide Review acclaimed as “fascinating and thought-provoking”.

An intense yet meditative and deeply moving reflection on the treacherous journey across the wilds of eastern Antarctica undertaken by South Australian explorer Sir Douglas Mawson and his ill-fated team in 1913, South depicts Mawson’s perilous voyage as an allegory for our current predicament in an era of rapid global warming.

Stewart’s choreography perfectly captures the despair of Mawson and his crew as they battle the elements of Antarctica’s alien and forbidding landscape. Featuring ten incredible dancers who display “spectacular, even transcendent, athleticism” (Witness Performance), South is an unmissable work full of beauty, power and pathos.

South will be performed live following a screening of ADT’s multi-award-winning, visually spellbinding short film, The Circadian Cycle, directed by Garry Stewart. This stunning film has captivated audiences across the globe, from New York, Los Angeles and Toronto to Athens, Moscow and, closer to home, Adelaide.

  • Winner of Outstanding Achievement in Choreography (Garry Stewart for South) in 2019 at the Australian Dance Awards, presented by AusDance

Warning: South contains nudity and is recommended for audiences 14+. Haze is featured intermittently throughout the performance.
