Carmen Sweet – Brave New Work

A brilliant piece of dance theatre performed to Rodion Shchedrin’s gripping Carmen Suite by six Expressions Dance Company dancers

NATALIE WEIR’S
CARMEN SWEET
Produced by Expressions Dance Company and Queensland Performing Arts Centre

Spend the night with the definitive seductress of stage as she weaves her deliciously wicked wiles through one of Expressions Dance Company’s most loved productions.

Performed to Rodion Shchedrin’s gripping Carmen Suite by six EDC dancers, this iconic tale of Spanish heat and gypsy passion unravels when naïve soldier Don Josè has his heart ignited by the fiery Carmen.

Josè’s attempts to tame the freedom-loving beauty are futile, and when she leaves him for the famous matador Escamillo, all three are engulfed in the flames of jealousy and revenge.

Natalie Weir’s Carmen is a free spirit; dangerous, volatile and vulnerable, brought to vivid life by three dancers playing her different states of mind and alter egos.

“A journey of seduction, jealousy, lust and revenge” Dance Australia

“A brilliant piece of dance theatre” The Courier-Mail

“A short, sharp and very entertaining interpretation of a classic tale… Four stars” Artshub
