Carriageworks premieres 'Birds with Skymirrors' from acclaimed Samoan choreographer

Carriageworks will present the Australian premiere of Birds with Skymirrors on 1 May 2013, a contemporary dance work by internationally acclaimed group MAU that incorporates dance, ceremony, poetry and chant. This uplifting dance work comes from distinguished Samoan choreographer Lemi Ponifasio, globally regarded as one of the most innovative and controversial theatre artists today.

With a bold and ground-breaking stage vocabulary, Birds with Skymirrors is a dance reflection on the human relationship with the planet at a time of momentous climate change. Evocative lighting and video projections create an austere and mystical world, as the performers convey an urgent message – radical climate change is not an apocalypse about to happen; it is already here.
