Centre of Contemporary Arts Presents:

Event: Dancenorth's In Two Minds

Book Online

Dancenorth and Centre of Contemporary Arts Cairns present two distinct new dance works from three of Australia’s most exciting young choreographers.


Alisdair Macindoe’s A Pre-emptive Requiem For Mother Nature delves into the magic of the organic world, reflecting on physical phenomena we often take for granted. Driven by inimitable natural forms the performers interact like flocking birds, schools of fish and clouds in the wind.


Kyle Page and Amber Haines rigorously explore ‘the duet’ in Syncing Feeling. Delving into Theory of Mind, Metacognition and Mirror Neurons, Syncing Feeling illuminates cognitive processes that facilitate a host of enigmatic aspects of the human mind, including empathy, imitation learning and the decoding of another person’s actions, feelings and emotions. Ground breaking research within the field of neuroscience is challenging preconceptions around human interactions and only now beginning to prove what Eastern philosophy has known for millennia… that the only thing that separates us is our skin.
