Transience: a Triple-Bill by Attitude Dance Company

Transience features three original works by choreographers Xavier McGettigan and Stacey Carmichael, Retroaction, A Brief Encounter and The Visitor. Athletic skill, storytelling and emotion combine in this exciting debut for the Attitude Dance Company Impact Ensemble. Retroaction by Xavier McGettigan is a collection of vinyl records can sit unattended or be constantly in play, but in either case they hold precious memories. Intended as a showcase of the ADC Impact Ensemble dancers incredible talent and versatility, Retroaction features a wishlist of music of artists like Paul Simon, Kate Bush, Hall and Oates, Nick Drake, Toto and more. A Brief Encounter by Stacey Carmichael is about a girl who walks into a room, she sits. What if the couch she sits on could tell the stories it is seen - love, pain, sleep, violence, laughter. You encounter people, you encounter objects sometimes only for a fleeting moment, but what stories do you leave behind? A dance and physical theatre piece. The Visitor by Xavier McGettigan is inspired by Jim O’Rourke’s incredible 38-minute masterpiece of the same name, ‘The Visitor’ explores how it feels to be the Other, yet as the Self, can anyone truly be an outsider?
