Natalie Weir's WHEN TIME STOPS

From award winning choreographer Natalie Weir and Queensland's premier contemporary dance company, Expressions Dance Company, comes When Time Stops - a haunting journey of life-changing moments.

In her final moments, a woman's life flashes before her eyes, opening the floodgates on those achingly personal yet intensely dramatic life-defining events: loss, new love, tragedy, and longing. How we deal with these moments determines who we are, who we become and what we hold dear.

When Time Stops features Iain Grandage's Helpmann Award winning score, performed live on stage by Queensland's chamber orchestra, Camerata of St John's.

The return season of this highly celebrated work features design by Bill Haycock and lighting by David Walters.

"An exhilarating experience...a dazzling event" The Guardian

"An arresting, poignant, and ultimately, haunting piece of theatre" The Courier Mail

Presented by Expressions Dance Company and Queensland Performing Arts Centre in association with Camerata of St John's.
