Compagnie Thor | Thierry Smits (Belgium)

A radical solo of rebellion

ReVoLt is a new work from the internationally-acclaimed Belgian choreographer Thierry Smits. A stripped-down, intense solo created for the explosive young Australian dancer Nicola Leahey, the piece is a metaphor for the oppression of the female body, and an articulation of the universal urge to resist constraint, to rebel. Leahey’s fierce physical and emotional commitment powers a tightly-wound essay on the necessity of revolt, the breach to be found, and the freedom to be won.
