Still

Dancenorth Australia

Expand into stillness.

Sense our interrelationship with the earth.

Be here, together, for this fleeting, magnificent moment.

Merge with the morning as the rising sun paints the ocean in warm hues, the sky a subtle tapestry. A breathtaking canvas for this daily symphony of beauty, awe, and wonder.

Still is an immersive sonic journey curated by Dancenorth’s Artistic Director Kyle Page. Housed within a stunning architecturally designed space by Liminal Spaces, you and 21 other guests will collectively witness the dawn of a new day while being cradled by the sounds of Canadian composer Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion, Black Ox Orkestar).
