Elements Collective bring their cast of world class freestyle & breakdancers to the stage in their highly anticipated dance work; M.I.N.D.E.D ; a show that will inspire & provoke!
The performance takes us inside a mind full of thoughts and mixed emotions. Confronting fear, joy, sadness, ego and frustration head on while exploring the ways our thoughts can create altered perceptions of reality.
Directed by multi-national champion b-girl Leah Tilney and music by ARIA award winning artist Ben Ely (Regurgitator), M.I.N.D.E.D is an emotional journey through movement and character connection. With an original soundtrack that leaves audiences in a state of awe through a soundscape of dark ambience and powerful builds. M.I.N.D.E.D is not your standard "hip-hop" piece. Its a powerful, emotional performance mixing choreography with aerial straps apparatus creating levels of dance from the ground to the air.
This show pushes boundaries of hip-hop theatre with pristine acrobatics, intricate choreography and intense body awareness with an entirely Australian cast of multi award winning performers.
M.I.N.D.E.D won the "Best Dance Award" and "Weekly Dance Award" at their premier season at the 2017 Adelaide Fringe Festival and have since gone on to tour throughout 2018 in Melbourne and the Xintiandi Festival in Shanghai & Foshan, China.
