Strings Attached was Australian Dance Part’s first performance. It investigated the intimate and ancient connection between dance and music. Artists of the CSO together with the Australian Dance Party’s contemporary dancers collaborated to present the complex and important marriage of these artistic forms. What are the physiological, neurological, ritual, social and theatrical connections of movement and sound?
