Albury Entertainment Centre will celebrate the start of its 2024 theatre season this Friday with Wayfinder, described in its promotional material as a “kaleidoscopic fusion of dance, music and visual art”.

Entertainment centre manager, Brendan Maher, says Wayfinder is an outstanding way to kick off what promises to be an amazing 12 months of theatre at the iconic venue.

“We’re really excited about what’s in store for the 2024 season, and this show just sets us off on the right foot with its incredible colour, movement and artistic flair,” he said.

“Wayfinder is only on for one night, so make sure you don’t miss out!”

Wayfinder is directed by Amber Haines and Kyle Page and features acclaimed Queensland dance troupe Dancenorth Australia and three-time Grammy-nominated Australian band Hiatus Kaiyote.

Dancenorth is one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance companies having presented work in more than 45 international arts festivals and venues around Australia and the world and is an integral part of the Australian dance ecology making a significant contribution to the dance sector and building literacy around contemporary dance nationally.

The show also features sound artist Byron J. Scullin, who helps to create “a soaring composition evoking pleasure and possibility”.

“Speaking to our sensorial nature, Wayfinder reminds us of a state of being that transcends the words that have come to define us,” the blurb says.

“Navigating bigger and more ancient reference points, Wayfinder recognises connection as the central axis of the universe. By the stars, the waves, and the sun, we find our way.”

Wayfinder opens at 7:30 pm this Friday 16 February at the Albury Entertainment Centre.
