Enter a world of imagination, where light, sound and colour erupt from the darkness in this kaleidoscopic, mind-blowing interactive show.

Enter a space of tangled imagination, where light and sound collide in a familiar yet distant world. Creatures from afar morph within the shadows to navigate an ever-changing landscape of bewilderment and wonder. Synaesthesia envelopes the mind as rhythm becomes vision, voice shapes movement and light warps sound. Welcome to the world of Rainbow Vomit, a place where anything is possible, everything can happen, and much more than colour erupts from the darkness...

Rainbow Vomit (redux) is an immersive work designed to target young audiences, whilst maintaining appeal for kids of all ages. Audience members are invited to watch the performance through their own pair of ‘fireworks glasses’, which refracts light into all colours of the spectrum, generating thousands of rainbows.

"..the diversity of sensory input and cleverness in melding elements of dance and theatre that this performance provides is eidetic and sensational, and is guaranteed to be a hit for all who take the trip to see it." ARTS HUB

"This show is a rare achievement, a resonant sensory journey into our inner, earlier, less convoluted childhood state." REALTIME

Feedback from previous tours has indicated that some Presenters find the production's title of RAINBOW VOMIT can be challenging to market. Dancenorth is open to changing the name in collaboration with Presenters. Rainbow Vomit (redux) will maintain all of the magic from the original production of Rainbow Vomit (2016/2017), with a reduction in the demand for personnel, crewing and infrastructure expenses from the Presenter.

Centred on an inclusive ethos of shared ownership, collective conscience, support, interconnection and empowerment, Dancenorth’s artistic philosophy provides a fertile framework which galvanises the company’s creative and administrative endeavours.

Deeply connected to place, to the vastness of the sky, the richness of the land and the saline breath of the ocean, we embrace our regional home base in Townsville as a source of inspiration and creative energy. We respond to isolation as enabling, enriching and facilitating a way of making that is responsive to these people in this place at this time.

Integration of body and mind, exploration, radical ambition and inclusivity anchor a suite of both internal and external artistic practices. We practice this artistic philosophy daily by incorporating mind/ body techniques into our work that are designed to support the use of a full range of mental, emotional and sensorial processes in dance creation. The aim is to nurture technical virtuosity, intellectual rigour and emotional presence in equal measure.

Dancenorth was founded on the ancestral lands of the Wulgurukaba of Gurambilbarra and Yunbenun. We acknowledge the fact that Aboriginal People are Australia’s first dancers.
