G @ Wagga Wagga Civic Centre
Australian Dance Theatre presents G by Garry Stewart
The 2013 Australian tour of G is supported by the Australian Government’s national performing arts touring program, Playing Australia.
“JAW DROPPINGLY PHYSICAL”

In 2000 Garry Stewart premiered Birdbrain, an ironic, post modern deconstruction of Swan Lake. In 2008 the leading choreographer continued his project of referencing iconic ballet with the debut of G, a reworking of Giselle. Dramaturgically, G refers to an essay titled Giselle, Madness and Death by Steven Wainwright of Kings College London which links the narrative of Giselle to the pathologisation of women as hysterics in early 19th century France.
The themes of love, death, madness and betrayal rip across the stage in a series of scenes which burst vividly from the stage in emerald green costuming and lighting.
Having already toured Europe extensively, G is back in Australia and touring regional venues. It will be shown on 22 June 2013 at Wagga Wagga Civic Centre .
The dancers’s athleticism flexes to the musical score created by Luke Smiles (Motion Laboratories), one of the luminaries of music composition for the new wave of Australian contemporary dance. G was co-commissioned by The Joyce Theater’s Stephen and Cathy Weinroth Fund for New Work (New York), Southbank Centre (London) and Merrigong Theatre Co. at Illawarra Performing Arts Centre (Wollongong). G was co-produced by Theatre de la Ville (Paris).
