“Super fun, fiercely staunch, mega hot, and serving home truths all at the same time.”– Nothing Ever Happens In Brisbane
Brisbane-based collective Pink Matter are here to usher street dance into a new realm of theatre in this vibrant multi-disciplinary work.
Fusing street dance with spoken word, Betwixt takes a glimpse into the journeys of Wanida, Huda, Joshua, Amy and Jazi. Five artists become heightened versions of themselves as they embody the energies of the five elements – water, air, fire, earth, and spirit. They each share a story of ruin and resilience through the combined power of spoken word poetry and various styles of street dance. A reckoning and a purging of cosmic proportions.
A rallying cry for the street dancing community, Betwixt celebrates diversity by exploring rich cultural perspectives, delving into everything from relationships and upbringing to identity and sense of self.
“This work is truly phenomenal.” – Nothing Ever Happens In Brisbane
This work is suitable for children aged 15+
