An elegant dinner party hosted by an influential young man for his manipulative guests is thrown into turmoil when power meets greed, ambition and jealousy. As the evening wears on The Dinner Party exposes society’s insatiable desire for control and status and the power play between the guests intensifies as the accusations start to fly.
Who really holds the power at this sophisticated table? And who will be in control by the time coffee is served?
Premiering to extraordinary reviews in Brisbane in 2015, The Dinner Party (former title The Host), is gripping contemporary dance theatre from Queensland’s award-winning Expressions Dance Company.
You will be struck by the sublime costumes by acclaimed Australian fashion designer Gail Sorronda, original music recordings from Queensland’s highly acclaimed Southern Cross Soloists and inspiring movement by internationally renowned choreographer, Natalie Weir, in this thrilling ride that exposes the not-so-beautiful in beautiful people.
