26 Nov – 14 Dec @ The Blue Room Theatre ·
Presented by The Blue Room Theatre, Scott Elstermann &
Shona Erskine ·
Murder, melodrama and Wes Anderson combine in this theatrical dance double-header. Act 2, Scenes 1-4 is a mischievous take on Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel by Pina Bausch fellow Scott Elstermann. A visually striking crime caper, we are swept into a world of saturated colour, playful movement and sinister murder.
Gunshots at a ball, evil stepmothers and town gossip feed into a melodrama of three Australian women doing what they had to do. Love You, Stranger is a deliciously fascinating exploration of true crimes and true love, by Shona Erskine.
Two world premieres that will have you reconsidering what you thought about contemporary dance.
