Welcome to 대홍수 Deluge
Conceived by Jeremy Neideck and realised by an international team, 대홍수 (Daehongsu) Deluge is a new experimental dance project that is the result of a long-term, transcultural collaboration and dialogue between artists from Brisbane and Seoul.
Plunged into the depths of a feverish dream, the audience bears witness to a cycle of rituals and meditations that conjure up ancient myths of waterlogged gods.
Subtle transformation, explosive choreography, and dynamic amplified vocalisation, combine to explore the deep sorrow and sublime ecstasy that are hallmarks of Korean culture, refracted through an Australian lens that evokes a paradoxical relationship with one of nature’s most destructive elements - from droughts to flooding plains.
