Wasteland is a new contemporary dance production inspired by T. S. Eliot’s groundbreaking modernist poem, ‘The Waste Land’. Featuring an exciting collaboration between contemporary dance and original composition, Wasteland interrogates what it means to be hopeful in times of crisis. Explored through a lens of climate anxiety, Siobhan Judge and collaborators have devised "a lyrical, powerful and ambitious work" (Melbourne Observer) that revitalises our engagement with Eliot's text. Composers Anusha Yellapragada and Daniel Jasper Parr deliver an evocative experimental score that "gives shape to the mesmerising pulse and mood" (Melbourne Observer) of this contemporary dance piece, alongside Freya Solnordal's breath-taking lighting design and Callum Dale's striking set.
Created by Siobhan Judge, Midori Hong, Daniel Jasper Parr, Anusha Yellapragada, Freya Solnordal, Luca Edwards, Lee Su Min, Yasmin Bouzas, Lisa Baker, Jillian Doughty, Brendan McRae, Ayonna Saha, Alex McAll, Shakira Ariffin, Sam Pringle and collaborators.
