Lighting the Dark

About

A bold new work by Chris Dyke, a Kaurna (Adelaide) based dancer and choreographer who’s championing inclusivity through his work and the way he himself lives.

Chris, the embodiment of love itself, emanates compassion, transcending limitations and inviting us all into his radiant embrace. Yet, amidst his rich internal landscape of dreams and boundless imagination, the world often fails to see beyond the cover of the book — a book that if we dared to open, would reveal radical inspiration, creative brilliance, hope and love.

Inspired by Chris’ real-life heroes Banksy, David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, Lighting the Dark shines brightly on Chris’ profoundly moving and life-affirming adventure through the world. Throughout the work, each of these icons acts as a mirror reflecting Chris’ expansive perception and limitless sense of possibility.

With the mesmerising Dancenorth Ensemble by his side, Chris leads the way, transforming the stage into a portal where love and light illuminate darkness.
