Australian Dance Party: Nervous

What are we nervous about?

NERVOUS is a dance, laser light, electronic music and science experience of nervousness. In conjunction with neuroscientist Greg Stuart (ANU), the work parallels the neurological functions of our brain, the networks of our planet and the cosmos.

    Are both the human brain/body and the planet experiencing a frenetic, nervous state?

    The show is under the stars, inside the burnt-out dome of Mt. Stromlo Observatory. NERVOUS is created by dancer/director Alison Plevey with creative collaborators and performers Gabe Comerford, Olivia Fyfe and Janine Proost, lighting by Robbie Gordon and all new electronic music written by Ben Worth (Ben Colin). Dramaturgy by Karla Conway.

    • 7.30pm - December 1st, 2nd and 3rd
    Location: Yale Columbia Dome, is the burnt out Observatory next to the visitors centre.
