Darebin Arts Speakeasy presents Underworld

BY Darebin Arts Speakeasy | 31-Aug-2017
“Their crime was against nature. Nature found them guilty” (Long Weekend, 1978) Dynamic contemporary dance choreographers, Sarah Aiken and Rebecca Jensen present the world premiere of Underworld - a dark, thoughtful, humorous and hopeful environmental horror at Northcote Town Hall from 1 to 9 September.
A prequel to Aiken and Jensen’s Dance Massive 2015 and Next Wave 2014 work Overworld, this cautionary tale drawing inspiration from the 1978 Australiana horror film Long Weekend.

Created and performed by Sara and Rebecca with Claire Leske and Louella Hogan, Underworld weaves together movement, sound and film, with the unique soundtrack created by musician/DJ/radio presenter Andrew Wilson (aka Art Wilson/Andras) and production design by Matt Adey.

Sarah and Rebecca have received support, residencies and critical acclaim for their collaborative projects as well as local, national and international recognition.
