Attitude Dance Company presents:
an original dance theatre production
Love, media, work, friendship and life bring us all together yet can tear us apart.
Are we more or less connected now than ever before?
Should we let people in or leave a quiet place for ourselves?
Why do we sometimes fight the human urge to reach out to one another?
How do we navigate a world where we are more connected than ever, yet somehow we are left feeling increasingly isolated?
The cast of ADC's latest work explores these themes through the medium of dance, both dynamic and tender with emotion and humour, featuring the talented youth cast of Attitude's Winter Holiday Workshops after the success of their recent Summer Holiday Workshops culminating in January 2018's On The Move.
(dis)connect confronts our most basic need and common fear, connecting with each other at the beautiful Shenton Performing Arts Centre.

A BRIEF ENCOUNTER
by Stacey Carmichael
A girl walks into a room, she sits. What if the couch she sits on could tell the stories it's seen... love, pain, sleep, violence, laughter. We encounter people, we encounter objects sometimes only for a fleeting moment... but what stories do we leave behind? A dance & physical theatre piece.
by Xavier McGettigan
Inspired by Jim O’Rourke’s incredible 38-minute masterpiece of the same name, ‘The Visitor’ explores how it feels to be the Other, yet as the Self, can we truly be an outsider? Are we ever alone when we travel through with ourselves for company?
