On a striking pink set reminiscent of Busby Berkley, a team of explosive drummers sit behind a troupe of astonishing dancers, in an impressive show of percussive and physical force. It’s an irresistible embrace of music, rhythm and motion you must see – and feel – for yourself.
Presented by Stephanie Lake Company Manifesto takes the historical association of mass drumming with military might and changes it into a rallying cry to solidarity, as the audience is immersed in sound, light and movement. Manifesto becomes more complex and thrilling as it builds towards a wildly loud and powerfully danced crescendo.
Sold-out across Australia and fresh from its triumphant international premiere in Germany, this whiplash of pure, combustible energy comes bottled for the Festival stage. An infectious ‘tattoo to optimism’, Manifesto slams together electrifying dancing and huge, raw sound that will leave you shaking.
