Mirror Image at ANU Arts Centre 4-6 April 2014

JSforwebMirror Image – reflections on people and land at ANU Arts Centre Main Theatre.

It was bump in day today for Mirramu, Dancecology and DPAC Dance Company at the ANU Arts Centre Main Theatre. There were people up and down ladders all day draping fabric, hanging lights, rolling tarkett. Production week has arrived!

People lucky enough to be at The Ralph Wilson Theatre Gorman House Arts Centre for Walking on water … and other miracles on Sunday 30 March at the closing event for Weereewa Festival got just a tiny smidgeon of Mirror Image – reflections on people and land. One audience member commented that one would pay a couple of hundred dollars to see work of that calibre at The Sydney Opera House. Hmmm there’s a thought.

We invite you to book now and be part of the world premiere season audience from 4 to 6 April 2014.

This production is the result of a year-long collaboration at Mirramu on Lake George and in Taiwan, but has its roots in the long-standing relationships Elizabeth has with Taiwan. She first went there more than 40 years ago and built connections with the famed Madame Tsai and the Tsai Jui-Yueh Foundation as well as the Taipei University of the Arts. Elizabeth is a frequent and regular invited artist and mentor in Taiwan.

Although unfunded by government or major corporates, Mirror Image is proceeding with the generous support of the artists, the Mirramu team and private donors. It promises to be both visually beautiful and thought provoking in its themes.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. Online bookings at http://www.canberrarep.org.au. There are group and family rates available as well as the usual offerings.

There will be cash sales only at the door as well an hour before each show.
