About Common Dissonance at Theatre Works

__In a 21st Century world where it is common to believe in both star signs and psychology, in Chinese medicine and pharmaceuticals, and in religion and science – how can we navigate the complex dialogues that consume contemporary culture? __

For thousands of years in Australia, understanding of the world came from dreamtime stories, song lines, and oral histories all of which are still relevant to many Australians. Our environment is riddled with the hypocrisies of a culturally diverse past lingering in the wake of a globalized present.

Common Dissonance seeks balance, community, exchange, unity and diversity, featuring two contemporary circus performers with shared and distinctly individual experiences. Isabelle Champagne-Chittick (Social Staples) is a white Australian raised in regional NSW, and Harley Mann (Casus, CIRCA) is an indigenous Australian raised in Sydney. The two performers live and work in Melbourne, where this show was created.

Na Djinang Circus is known for being a First Nations led company imbued with traditional and contemporary styles of performance with shapes, images, and styles of indigenous performance, rituals, and iconography.

This contemporary circus work aims not only to explore the harmony and conflict of contemporary Australian reasoning, but to find a COMMON DISSONANCE.
