Major new dance work will flood Gold Coast stage

BOLD in its vision and deeply evocative, Lisa Wilson’s Lake will literally flood The Arts Centre Gold Coast’s main stage on Tuesday May 13 as it delves into our fascination and fear of water.

This widely-acclaimed independent production delivers stark captivating theatricality in what is acknowledged as a major new Australian dance theatre work.

Set on a stage in flood, Lake merges contemporary dance, video and sound to create an immersive experience with startling visual impact.


Bruce McKinven’s stark and broody design and Wilson’s skillful and intimate choreography draw attention to the inherent qualities and contradictions of water.

Audiences will witness three amazing dancers performing in the water, surrounded by stunning visual effects like rain, fire and lightning.

Serene. Calm. Haunting. Menacing. This work reflects on the journey of a relationship, evoking its path from sparkling reflection to murky depths; from intense beauty to chilling isolation, to utter wilderness and our deepest sense of our selves within the world.

Lake plays with the light and depth of water, its innate movement and total stillness, to explore primal undercurrents in human relationships in this visually stunning work.
