A good dancer trains until they get it right. A great dancer trains until they can’t get it wrong.
Feathered and Fierce gives you a taste of the grit behind the glamour of dance performance. Breaking down the usual guards you’ll see the reality of failure, tenacity and incredible strength that make a moment in the spotlight.
Choreographed and Directed by world champion samba dancer Amy Mills and performed with her award winning company, this is samba and latin dance like you’ve never seen it before.
Eight powerful women push their physical and mental limits without restraint. They won’t hide their work in flashy presentation. In this stripped back space you’ll see the sweat, hear every breath, feel the camaraderie and find the drive that fuels this world-class team.
This is dance at it’s most intimate.
