Australian Dance Theatre says
The Beginning of Nature, is a 40-minute dance and music performance based upon the idea of rhythms in nature. Humans – and all living forms – exist within a phenomenally complex symphony of overlapping rhythms that constitute the very fabric of nature and life itself. These rhythms are manifested in day and night, the seasons, tidal patterns, migration, hibernation, sleep and waking, weather patterns, the binary of growth and decay and the various systems of the body.

The music will be composed by Brendan Woithe who has has created the sound for many of ADT’s internationally renowned touring works. For The Beginning of Nature, Australian Dance Theatre have collaborated with the celebrated Zephyr Quartet.

ADT will collaborate with the Zephyr Quartet, a celebrated South Australian classical music ensemble and local Indigenous singers on the development of the score, which will incorporate the Kaurna language. Kaurna is the local language of the first peoples of the Adelaide plains. The Kaurna language is the cultural property of the Kaurna people. In the creation of this work ADT is consulting with Kaurna Elder Uncle Lewis O’Brien, respected Adelaide-based Indigenous artist and consultant, Lee-Ann Buckskin, and Jack Buckskin, a Kaurna language teacher and dancer, to develop the language component of this project. Garry is also in discussion with Professor Ghil’ad Zuckerman, Chair of Linguistics and Endangered Languages at the University of Adelaide and a leading world expert in language revival.
