“World class theatre – sumptuously imagined, visually stunning and profoundly moving”
Rawcus is an ensemble of performers with and without disability. Collaborating with a core creative team led by Artistic Director Kate Sulan, Rawcus aims to devise new work that expresses the imaginative world of the Ensemble. Drawing on dance, theatre and visual art disciplines, the work is crafted with a precision that supports the performers but allows space for their inherent sense of anarchy. A series of moving pictures, Rawcus’ work is sculptural, unexpected, beautiful, funny and tender.
Rawcus’ work has won numerous awards and has featured as part of the Next Wave, Melbourne Fringe and the Melbourne International Arts Festival. The group has worked collaboratively with diverse Australian arts companies including Restless Dance Company, Born in a Taxi, The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Chambermade Opera.
“A moving assertion of humanity …with a wicked sense of humour”
“The pleasure is in the spontaneous expression, diverse physical virtuosity, unpredictable leaps and turns and alternative communication skills”
