ODC/Dance Takes on Climate Change & Hoarding
in Two Performances Created by the Company’s Legendary Founders
ODC/Dance (Oberlin Dance Company) is known throughout the world for its athleticism, passion and intellectual depth. The company has been widely recognized for its fusion of ballet and modern techniques and for their numerous ground-breaking collaborations.
Dance Victoria invited ODC/Dance to perform during its Year of the Choreographer as both of the company’s Artistic Directors, KT Nelson and Brenda Way, are celebrated dance creators. Way has been called the first “post modern” choreographer, creating more than 85 pieces over the last 45 years. She is a national spokesperson for dance and has been published widely. Nelson choreographed and directed the company’s first full-length family ballet, The Velveteen Rabbit, which is performed annually. Both Way and Nelson have received numerous awards, including multiple Isadora Duncan Dance Awards for their choreography.
ODC/Dance will perform two of their works at the Royal Theatre on February 2 and 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm: Dead Reckoning and What we carry, What we keep.
