Description After a decade of dialogue between Adelaide director/choreographer Leigh Warren and Japanese director/choreographer Uno Man, the two have joined forces to create a cross-cultural dance work enriched by both experience and innovation. Inspired by haiku poet Basho’s classic text The Narrow Road to a Far Province, Wanderlust imbues an ancient journey with modern attitude. The work is a fusion of dance genres and contemporary screen media, drawing upon the cultural traditions of Japan and Australia to forge a new work relevant to today’s audiences. Crystalline and meticulously observed, Wanderlust combines Uno’s unique style of expressing pathos and humour with Leigh Warren’s poetic imagery and technical virtuosity. Enter a world where performers grace the stage with a brilliance only maturity can bring.
