Anna Seymour’s SPIN at Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre

 

Darebin Arts Speakeasy helped present this world premiere, SPIN, being described as “a dance party like no other”. It’s created, directed and performed by Anna Seymour in collaboration with dance participatory performance specialist Bec Reid, disc jockey DJ Callum Padgham, dancers Amanda Lever and Jon Clarke, and deaf hosts Luke King and Robbie Burrows. SPIN challenges the understanding of how dance and music can be experienced.

 

Seymour said, “With SPIN my desire was to blur boundaries between performers and audiences, shift perspectives about Deaf people and dance and music, to engage more with community and people and break down physical and communication barriers in society.”

 

SPIN opened last night, Friday, September 21, and will be presented two more times today, September 22, at 2 and 8 p.m. at the Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre. Book tickets at www.darebinarts.com.au
