Appearing for the first time at The Art House, Queensland’s critically acclaimed Expressions Dance Company presents a night of gripping contemporary dance theatre with The Dinner Party.

An elegant dinner party hosted by an influential young man for his manipulative guests is thrown into turmoil when power meets greed, ambition and jealousy.

Premiering to extraordinary reviews in Brisbane, The Dinner Party (former title The Host), now tours Australia. Through stunning contemporary dance, the audience discovers who really holds the power at this sophisticated table, and who will be in control by the time coffee is served.

Expressions Dance Company has expertly combined sublime costumes by acclaimed Australian fashion designer Gail Sorronda, original music recordings from Queensland’s renowned Southern Cross Soloists, and exquisite choreography by award-winning choreographer Natalie Weir in this thrilling ride that exposes the not-so-beautiful in beautiful people.

Natalie Weir, who is known internationally for her highly physical partner work and organic movement style, took over the role of Artistic Director of Expressions Dance Company from 2009-2018. Weir brings her signature flair to this captivating and heartfelt performance.

Since starting in 1984 Expressions Dance Company has gone on to become one of Queensland’s leading contemporary dance theatre companies. Their talented ensemble of only 6-8 dancers have achieved incredible national recognition through various awards and nominations, including 10 Helpmann Award and 10 Australian Dance Award nominations.

Don’t miss this passionate and thought-provoking dance theatre experience – one show only!
