You’re in a place where the eels lay down and the cars light up. Where the Maccas sign is the biggest moon in the sky. It’s Parramatta. Summertime. Early evening. Encounter is your invitation to the neighbourhood. This joyful, site-specific work of music and dance, set in the parklands of Parramatta’s Prince Alfred Square, is an exploration of the everyday extraordinariness and power of ​young people living in Western Sydney and regional Australia. Directed by Emma Saunders and developed with a cast of 16 dancers and 48 musicians, in collaboration with award-winning artists, composers Amanda Brown (The Go-Betweens) and Jodi Phillis (The Clouds), writer Felicity Castagna, conductor James Pensini, and associate artist Rob McCredie, Encounter invites you to celebrate the indomitable spirit of youth and the world they find themselves in. Arrive early at Prince Alfred Square Park and bring your picnic blankets to enjoy Prelude, a warm-up to Encounter, featuring a rotating showcase of short performances by local dance revolutionaries and community dance leaders.
