COMPANY

Force Majeure (Austalia)


 
 

Force Majeure produces award-winning dance theatre works that reflect upon contemporary life and explore the issues that affect us all.
Established in 2002 and led by Artistic Director Kate Champion with Artistic Associates Geoff Cobham and Roz Hervey, Force Majeure strives to break down boundaries between different art forms. 

Each production is based around a collective of multi-disciplined artists including dancers, actors, writers, visual artists, composers and filmmakers. The result is challenging and relevant works that combine striking imagery with theatricality and immediate impact.

Since 2002, Force Majeure has produced three critically acclaimed major stage works, the most recent being The Age I’m In.  The company has also undertaken collaborative works and has produced a short film series.
In 2006 Force Majeure premiered in Europe with Already Elsewhere at the Biennale de la Danse in France. 
In 2008 The Age I’m In performed a season at CarriageWorks and was presented at both Sydney Festival and Adelaide Festival of Arts. 
In 2009 the company will tour internationally with The Age I’m In to Ireland, Canada and Korea, as well as collaborating on co-productions with Sydney Theatre Company and Brink Productions.
