Aracaladanza

Dance and visual theatre for all audiences.

We'll always remember the Belgian painter Magritte for his black bowler and as one of the best examples of surrealism. Surrealism: You see a cloud and turn it into a sheep. Well, in reality, all clouds are sheeps. Or are all sheeps clouds? It doesn't matter: You see a sheep and zap! You realize it's a cloud.

CLOUDS is the reflection of Aracaladanza's team imagination after seeing Magritte's paintings. The show transforms the absurd into an artistic engine and emphasizes 'the company's mark': the relation of dance to objects to transform them into protagonists. Powerful and full of abstract and aesthetic suggestions, it shows up vast imagination. After seeing Clouds, open that door in your head and allow yourself to imagine whatever you want.


THE PRESS SAID:


"When Aracaladanza's Clouds finishes its run at the Perth International Arts Festival, there will be hundreds of children who want to practice shadow puppets, play with balloon heads, and chase clouds that turn into sheep. And hopefully, hundreds more children who have fallen in love with the thrill that theatre can bring."
Australian Stage. ANNA LOCKE.

"Clouds is an entertaining, engaging, unique piece of work that will enchant whether you are five or one hundred and five."
Aussie Theatre. CRAIG DALGLISH.
