Common Dissonance

Cremorne Theatre, QPAC

Common Dissonance by Melbourne-based Na Djinang Circus is a beautifully choreographed First Nations work, showcasing some of the best Australia has to offer in contemporary dance and circus, coming to QPAC from June 22 to July 1, 2023.  

Common Dissonance, QPAC

For thousands of years in Australia, understanding of the world came from Dreamtime stories song lines and oral histories. In a 21st century world, the hypocrisies of a culturally diverse past linger in the wake of a globalised present.

Common Dissonance, QPAC

Common Dissonance explores this complexity in a moving contemporary circus work. Two performers, with shared and distinctly individual experiences, create a physical dialogue to seek balance, community, exchange, unity and diversity.

Common Dissonance, QPAC

In a world where it is common to believe in both spirituality and science - how can we navigate between harmony, conflict and the complex dialogues that consume contemporary culture to find a Common Dissonance?

Common Dissonance, QPAC

Common Dissonance arrives at QPAC following a highly successful, Greenroom Award nominated season at The Melba Spiegeltent and an award-winning season at the 2022 Adelaide Fringe.
