Leigh Warren & Dancers World Premiere Season at 2010 Adelaide Festival

Frame and Circle

The 2010 Adelaide Festival will host the world premiere season of Frame and Circle – a masterful new two‐part production from South Australia’s award‐winning Leigh Warren & Dancers showcasing the talents of two of Australia’s most creative contemporary choreographers, Leigh Warren and Prue Lang. Comprising two dance works – Rubicon (choreographed by Lang) and Meridian (choreographed by Warren) ‐ Frame and Circle will be presented at the Space Theatre (Adelaide Festival Centre) from 10–14 March 2010.

The production marks a home‐coming for Paris‐based Lang and is the first time the two award‐winning choreographers have worked in a program together. An internationally acclaimed dancer in her own right, Lang is also the creative force behind some of the most ambitious choreographic works currently being made in Europe. Born in Melbourne, Lang was invited to France in 1996 to join Compagnie L’Esquisse and later joined Forsythe’s revolutionary Frankfurt Ballet (1999–2004).

Over the past five years, Lang has created numerous critically acclaimed productions including the multi‐award winning performance‐installation Infinite Temporal Series (2006). Rubicon is the latest development away from Lang’s Infinite Temporal Series.

With a production team boasting two of Australia’s leading theatrical artisans – Mary Moore (set & costume design) and Margie Medlin (lighting design), Frame and Circle promises to engage, provoke and inspire audiences in this – its highly anticipated, world premiere season.
