Panta Rei Danseteater, a Norwegian dance company based in Oslo, is known for its fast-paced and colourful works. Formed in 2000, the company has toured the world and won international and national acclaim, but it has never before graced our shores. 

In an Australian first, Panta Rei Danseteater will perform two works at the Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts, Monash Clayton. The performance is part of MLIVE's ongoing Weightless dance series.

The first, I Wish Her Well, is comprised of entirely female performers. The evocative score by British composer Nathaniel Reed complements the fast-paced energy of the dance. Act one is based on the stories of four women known to the dancers, and act two is based on the diary of a 16-year-old Norwegian girl in 1953. That girl is now an 82-year-old woman, and she shared her thoughts and experiences with the choreographer and dancers for the most authentic storytelling experience. 

The second, Lullaby, is an entirely masculine performance, using the medium of dance to explore contemporary political themes. The three dancers ask questions about friendship and aggression through dance theatre.

There will be two performances of I Wish Her Well, at 2 and 6pm, and one performance of Lullaby at 8pm. You can buy individual tickets to the performances starting from $20 for students, but the better move would be to buy a combo ticket for the 6pm I Wish Her Well and the 8pm Lullaby. You can enjoy dinner and drinks at Script @ Jazz Club on the premises and make a night of it.
