With all the craziness going on these days, one tip we’d suggest is lose yourself to dance. And thanks to the Sydney Opera House, that perfect pick-me-up is just around the corner.
Acclaimed by critics and fans alike, the esoterically-titled to a simple, rock‘n’roll . . . song. is a triple bill of arresting choreography “from an artist at the top of his game”, backed by a sensational soundtrack featuring some of modern music’s most-revered mavericks, from avant-garde French composer Erik Satie to the late-great David Bowie and recent Opera House alumnus Patti Smith, whose seminal album Horses inspired the show’s title.
Springing from the creative mind of iconoclastic British choreographer Michael Clark, this production is sure to leave a mark with audiences. And with a killer lighting design from internationally renowned artist and filmmaker Charles Atlas, this show not only has the right moves and sound but the right look, to boot.
Having already wowed audiences in the UK, now it’s our turn to be moved by all this movement. Chris Prindiville
‘to a simple, rock ‘n’ roll . . . song.’ runs from 30 January – 4 February 2018, at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney. (The show will then travel to Perth from February 14-17 as part of the Perth International Arts Festival).
