Valley

From 15th to 17th February, FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres will present the Australian premiere of Valley, a powerful dance performance by Israeli choreographer Omer Backley-Astrachan.

Dark and enchanting, Valley is set on a frozen and desolate Arctic island where a small society of four co-exist. Through Backley-Astrachan’s exquisite choreography, Valley explores solitude, vulnerability and sensuality. Originally created as a solo performance in 2016, Valley has developed into an ensemble piece featuring Backley-Astrachan, Sharon Backley-Astrachan, Allie Graham and Matthew Mizyed. The work premiered at the 2017 Summer Dance Festival in Tel Aviv. Based in New South Wales, Backley-Astrachan’s works have been invited to venues and festivals across Australia and overseas. Additionally, he has worked with choreographers including Dean Walsh, Kay Armstrong and Joshua Thomson, as well as international artists such as Nick Cave and Marina Abramovic.

Performances: 15th February 2018 - 8:00pm 16th February 2018 - 12:30pm 16th February 2018 - 8:00pm 17th February 2018 - 8:00pm
