BLEACH* YES WE DANCE
Co-Commissioned By Bleach* Festival, Festival 2018 And City Of Gold Coast. Produced By Bleach* Festival
Ten everyday Gold Coasters, each with extraordinary ways of expressing themselves through dance, are matched with two choreographers and an ensemble of hundreds of community dancers. Together they will create ten of the newest dance sensations which say to the world, “We are the everyday people of the Gold Coast and yes, we dance!”
Yes, We Dance! is a genuine shout out to what it means to truly be free in your body, totally immersed in the movement and the moment.
Created by Gold Coast company Everybody NOW! and produced by Bleach* Festival, Yes, We Dance! is a joyous participatory performance experience. Lose yourself in this humorous, revealing, uplifting and ecstatic dancing party as your neighbour, bricklayer, barista and local school teacher become dancing greats. You’ll find yourself hollering with delight and pride, ‘These are my people and this is our dance!’
