Regional tour of successful dance production
After a successful 2011 premiere season in Perth, dance theatre production Shiver will tour regionally across Western Australia with performances in seven regional locations in Port Hedland, Geraldton, Merredin, Esperance, Margaret River, Bunbury and Mandurah from 26 September to 13 October 2012.

Shiver takes an honest look at life and loss through the lives of four strangers and their unique experiences of
different kinds of loss, from the exuberance of young love to the grief of sentimental loss, the passing of a loved one and the questioning of one's self.

Each story is interspersed with playful comedy, bang-on-the-floor movement and candid storytelling keeping the show fresh and unpredictable.

Directed by award-winning choreographer, director and performer Danielle Micich, who has had an extensive career working with prestigious companies including Buzz Dance Theatre, Nova Ensemble, STEPS, Barking Gecko and Force Majeure.

"Shiver uses humour and pathos to talk about loss, how we cope with it and how we eventually move on. The
stories are universal and explore the vulnerability of being human," said Micich.

An outstanding cast of Australian performers Gerard Van Dyck (VIC), Billie Cook (SA), Jacqui Claus (WA) and Lewis Kilpatrick (WA) have been selected for the tour based on their unique charismatic quality and on-stage personalities.

Gerard, director of genre-busting Victorian company KAGE, denies and negotiates his way out of facing the
past, whilst 19-year old Lewis confronts history head first, exposing the vulnerable side of growing up," said

Accompanying the tour is a program of performances, film projects and installations created by community
members and artists in each town based on the themes of Shiver.

This unique program of community engagement activities is already underway and has been made possible through the CircuitWest Pilot Touring Model, which aims to bridge the gap between regional audiences and the fantastic contemporary theatre and dance shows being produced in Perth.
