As a dance company renowned for defying convention, Leigh Warren & Dancers has enticed audiences with sublime marriages of movement with sound, and has done so once again with the world premiere of Breathe for WOMADelaide 2011.

The idea central to Breathe is exploring the sacred nature of suspended breath, forged around the ageless, spectral sound of the didgeridoo. With a powerful score composed and performed by Australia’s world-renowned didgeridoo master William Barton, an evocative dance has been choreographed by Frances Rings (a star dancer and choreographer from Bangarra Dance Theatre). The piece comes together as a telling cultural mesh of indigenous and non-indigenous artists.
