Kage presents Sundowner
Funded by an Australia Council ENGAGE grant, Dance on Tour 2013 is a joint initiative from Expressions Dance Company, Australian Dance Theatre, KAGE and Shaun Parker & Company. It has been created to maximise awareness, access and engagement with outstanding dance theatre in regional and remote areas of Australia in 2013.
Highlighting the popularity of dance, the four dance companies will collectively tour their productions to all eight Australian states and territories and visit a total of 55 venues, between March and September 2013.
KAGE, in partnership with Alzheimer’s Australia, invites you to examine the harder questions through dance this April. Told through the eyes of three generations, Sundowner expresses the story of so many Australian families.
If a loved one starts to lose their memories, what role can we play in holding onto them? And if our parent is no longer the person we knew, how can we care for them in the present and also honour their memory? Sundowner is a story of lament and, at times, grief and sorrow. Ultimately, though, it is a story of love; love of family, love of history and love of life.
Chris Boyd, in his review in The Australian, said ‘Sundowner succeeds in what it set out to do; engage, educate and entertain.’
