SELF (21 SEPTEMBER – 1 OCTOBER)
Michael Ralph in association with Hucklebuck Productions and Melbourne Fringe are pleased to present the world premiere of Michael Ralph’s ground-breaking dance theatre production SELF.
SELF is a thought-provoking journey into the psyche of an Artist and the human condition, expressed through choreography and original music composed exclusively for this new dance theatre production. As artists in this fast-paced and modern world, we lose ourselves in our work and life and can often struggle to cope with the pressures and expectations involved. SELF explores this through one man’s journey to find his true self.
A melting pot of cutting edge artists, SELF sees the collaboration of three of Australia’s most outstanding young theatre and musical talents. Director and Choreographer, Michael Ralph (Dusty, Georgy Girl, Loving Repeating) is one of the country’s rising choreographers who is sought after for his dynamic, unique style and fresh take on storytelling-through- dance. Jack Earle’s (The Jack Earle Big Band) original modern-jazz- inspired score will be performed by a live 7-piece orchestra. Dancer and Musical Theatre star Rohan Browne (Singin’ in the Rain, Strictly Ballroom) will take on the leading role of “The Artist” supported by an ensemble of six incredible dancers.
