SPIN by Anna Seymour
SPIN is a participatory dance event with a DJ and Deaf Hosts.
Created, directed and performed by Anna Seymour
in collaboration with Bec Reid, dancers, Deaf Hosts and DJ Callum Padgham.
SPIN is a dance party like no other.
A participatory dance performance event with a DJ and Deaf Hosts.
Inspired by club scenes in San Francisco, Mexico, Cuba and Berlin, SPIN celebrates the physical and social experience of dance parties, subcultures and the beats that bring us together.
SPIN challenges the understanding of how dance and music can be experienced. It offers an immersive experience, combining visual and tactile elements of DJ music, sound vibration design from Russell Goldsmith, visual projections from Rhian Hinkley, dance performance and energetic collective movement.
SPIN was created by contemporary dancer Anna Seymour in collaboration with engagement specialist Bec Reid, DJ Callum Padgham, Deaf Hosts Luke King and Robbie Burrows and dancers Amanda Lever, Jon Clarke and Benjamin Hoopmann.
SPIN is a physical and energetic dance performance event. There are no seats.
Participants will be divided into four groups and assigned with a Deaf Host who will guide participants through a series of super stylin’ moves leading into a dance party.
* No experience necessary, just your favourite dance moves!
We can’t wait to welcome you to SPIN. Let’s dance!
SPIN is highly visual and accessible for Deaf and hearing audiences.
There will be Auslan interpreters on site for pre-performance and post-performance mingling.
