Adelaide Festival // AM I

Adelaide Festival 28 February - 16 March 2014


Shaun Parker & Company


"Shaun Parker has a deft, original touch in creating theatre."

- Sydney Morning Herald

This stunning collision of dance and live music investigates the quintessential meaning of ‘I’. Am I my tribe? Am I my genetic blueprint? Am I a random cosmological consequence? Shaun Parker’s gripping choreography is beautifully set against composer Nick Wales’ rich tapestry of reinvented world music in an arresting collaboration performed by fourteen extraordinary musicians and dancers, including guest artist Shantala Shivalingappa.

“… it’s hard not to feel deliciously enlightened by this warm-hearted show”
