SARA BRODIE / LESHAN SONG AND DANCE TROUPE
CHRISTCHURCH / CHINA

When the shaking stops what's left? Fault Lines exposes the intimate human response to natural disaster.

Led by Christchurch locals; director Sara Brodie, assistant choreographer Ross McCormack and designer Mark McEntyre and created with the dancers of the Leshan Dance Company of southern China who experienced the devastating Sichuan quake of 2008, Fault Lines offers a private view of what it is to survive in the aftermath of a quake.


Hauntingly beautiful and revealing the strange, sometimes humorous and fundamental way an earthquake affects those remaining - a rare chance to witness a stirring tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.

Featuring original music by Gareth Farr and Gao Ping recorded by the CSO. Fault Lines had its world premiere at Melbourne Festival in October 2012.

Presented by Melbourne Festival and Christchurch Arts Festival in Association with Playking Foundation.
