SOLO – Festival of Dance

One dancer.
Under the spotlight.

Over 15 of this country’s finest dancers, including EDC’s own, will gather in Brisbane to take part in a groundbreaking event: SOLO – Festival of Dance.

Described as ‘one of the bravest productions EDC has ever staged’, SOLO will see each fearless dancer take to the stage to perform a stunning solo -stripped back and unadorned.

When you produce art without fear, rare gems are created.

This is a raw, sensual evening of dance where each dancer shares their beautiful artistry, virtuosity and individual style.

Showcasing the humanity of the physical form, SOLO cuts to the essence of what it truly means to dance.
