RAW: ADT – Worldhood – 5K

The Australian Dance Theatre (ADT) is a dance company of a different kind, with its roots firmly planted in contemporary dance culture. Artistic Director and world-renowned Choreographer, Garry Stewart heads up ADT, and under his direction the company has moved forward in leaps and bounds.

Excelling far ahead of its time, ADT’s work defines what 21st century ballet is. No exception to this is Stewart’s latest work Worldhood, a plethora of cutting-edge contemporary choreography, executed by (not only) the company’s professional dancers, but also third year dance students from the Adelaide College of the Arts, and is simultaneously merged with live charcoal drawings of city scapes and abstract creations, drawn during the performance, by artist Thom Buchanan. It’s a contemporary dance masterpiece, at times shocking, but you wouldn’t expect any less from Stewart’s genius mind.

The lighting and visual effects, mixed with a moving set, create depth and interest throughout the work, and although lengthy at times, the juxtaposition of light and shade throughout makes Worldhood a fascinating piece of creativity.

High energy, even in the moments when the movement slows, Worldhood will leave you wondering about the thinking behind it.
