It's about one moment...

From award-winning Australian choreographer Natalie Weir (where the heart is, R&J) comes When Time Stops - an ethereal voyage of life-changing moments.

The moment a single decision hurtles you into unknown territory...
The moment the water rises...
The moment you choose to stay or go...
The moment that stops time...
  

This anticipated new signature work from Expressions Dance Company opens the floodgates on those achingly personal yet intensely dramatic life-defining events: new life, loss, love and longing.

How we deal with these moments determines who we are, who we become, and what we hold dear. Do we sink or swim?

Bringing together 20 artists, When Time Stops is EDC's most ambitious work to date, with design by Bill Haycock, lighting by David Walters, and original composition by multi award-winning Australian composer Iain Grandage performed live by Queensland chamber orchestra, the Camerata of St John's.
