State Theatre will present Australia’s RAW Dance Company in their acclaimed show Project X on Friday, November 4, 2011 at 8pm. Project X is a high-energy mix of urban dance, beat boxing, and live music. Tickets range from $32-52.
RAW Dance Company’s Project X is funk tap, hip-hop, acrobatics, live music, percussion, and beat-boxing all rolled into one. RAW Dance’s infusion of tap dance with other genres and an urban style make each show sexy, exciting, and full of surprises. Along with the athletic, inventive, and charismatic dancers, the show includes live music—from funk to techno to Latin—and amazing sounds of beat boxer “Dr Rhythm.” Project X was conceptualized by Andrew Fee, creative producer of RAW Dance Company.
RAW Dance Company performers include Andrew Fee, Reece Hopkins, Daniel Sintes, Sam Windsor, Matthew Sintes, Joel Warden, Jeremy O’Connor, Andrew Keppie, and Jonathan Grant.
Raw Dance Company (originally called Raw Metal) was founded in 1998 by Andrew Fee, when he was just 18 years old. The company presents a high-energy fusion of popular street youth culture, featuring elements of “funk tap,” hip hop, break dance, beat-boxing, circus arts, contemporary dance, guitar, and percussion.
The company’s home base is Moorooka, a suburb of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. Their members have performed throughout Australia and around the world, wowing audiences in New York, London, Singapore, Switzerland, Germany, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.
Education is an important part of the company’s mission. They partner with a number of organizations to provide opportunities for young people from urban, rural, and regional communities to participate in fun and interactive dance workshops and performances. Raw Dance’s training programs are designed to help students develop into the professionals of tomorrow. For more information on RAW Dance visit www.RAW.ws.
