“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change.
I am changing the things I cannot accept.” Angela Davis

Exquisite Noise honours the art of assembly. Choreographer Dam Van Huynh explores alternative methods of dissent, drawing on noise to embody defiance and celebrating the power of coming together.
Sounds of protest against inequalities take centre stage, creating a unique sensory experience through music, lights and movement. This is a dance between disruption and communion, an invitation to wake up our collective spirit in an act of solidarity and care.
