Opal Vapour - Dance Work @ Blacktown Arts Centre
Opal Vapour is a mesmerising new contemporary dance work exploring deep connections between human origins and nature, ceremonial cleansing for purification, rites of passage and embodiment in performance.
Moving fluidly between powerful physical states, Jade Dewi Tyas Tunggai balances Javanese mystical traditions with contemporary dance. Her sinuous transformation is held by Ria Soemardjo’s pure voice and evocative music score resonating ancient Javanese gamelan. Both artists are transported through time by Paula van Beek’s sublime lighting landscapes and haunting shadow play.
Originally presented with Malthouse Theatre as part of Helium.
