Manifesto

Nine dancers. Nine drummers. Nine drum kits.
Ferocious dancing and electrifying sound.An explosive ‘tattoo to optimism’, Manifesto features nine dancers and nine drummers on nine drum-kits in front of a towering watermelon-pink velvet curtain. In precision concert, they unleash rebellion, command obedience, radiate wonder and show tenderness. Busby Berkeley opulence meets pounding percussion in a rallying cry for solidarity.

PRAISE FOR

Manifesto
"Watching the premiere of Manifesto feels less like viewing a performance and more like witnessing an explosive, ecstatic and primal phenomenon."
In Daily
"Manifesto is another triumph for Lake, a perfectly realised work that celebrates not just the relationship between music and dance, but also the joy of being alive. In these distressing times, we all need a dose of Manifesto’s optimism."
Dance Australia
"An hour of unsullied bliss."
