Bodies fly, voices soar and emotions run riot in this visceral new dance opera experience.
Abandon is a play at the World Theatre Festival which takes Handel’s gems and infuses them with thrilling physicality. The energy of the singers, dancers and musicioans is felt as they explore themes of heartbreak, jealousy and madness amongst Handel’s timeless music. The play is the critically-acclaimed collaboration between Dancenorth’s Raewen Hill, Opera Queensland’s Lindy Hume and classical accordion virtuso James Crabb.
The performance will appear at the Brisbane Powerhouse Museum from 21 to 23 February and runs for a total of 70 minutes.
