Colossus is an exhilarating contemporary dance performance for up to 60 dancers created by internationally renowned Australian choreographer Stephanie Lake.
At its heart, Colossus is about humanity and the exquisite complexity of living in close proximity to one another. The show is choreographically intricate, thematically bold and has been described as a ‘kick to the solar plexus’. It is at once delicately intimate and explosively dynamic. Featuring 50 student dancers in the original production, Colossus seeks to explore the joy and tension of the collective experience and how we navigate being individuals within the mass.
Colossus had a sell-out premiere season in 2018 at Arts Centre Melbourne and was met with standing ovations, five star reviews and a rapturous response from audiences. It has been listed as the Number 1 show of the year by Time Out Melbourne. The show’s video trailer has since gone viral online, reaching a global audience of millions.
