Liz Lea Dance presents a sea-full of loveable characters (and villains): Manta and Ray, Slinky the shark, clown fish, Minkie whales, and a devious Crown of Thorns starfish called Priscilla!

Using dance, theatre, and some amazing costumes, audiences learn how all life on the reef is interrelated. If a single organism or species is affected or declines in number it can have a huge ripple effect both down and up the Great Barrier Reef’s food chain.

Australia is taking the lead in collaborative scientific and arts research, and this will be acclaimed choreographer Liz Lea’s third joint venture after the success of Flying Facts (a theatrical exploration of the history and science of flight) and Star Struck (a dance-based response to astronomy and the science of the Big Bang).

Developed with support from QL2 Dance Canberra and an impressive array of leading scientific collaborators: including three people recently featured on David Attenborough’s documentary about the Great Barrier Reef.
