"Every beat was interpreted precisely, showcasing a deep connection with music, nature and sound."
Glam Adelaide
A United Force of Percussive Energy
NOISE is a work of epic proportions, created by Dancenorth’s Kyle Page and Amber Haines in collaboration with a local percussion community.
Dancenorth joins forces with 100 local volunteer drummers who thump out a scintillating live score in this dynamic community driven performance.
NOISE is a gathering, a united force of percussive energy and powerful dance designed to pull audience members into the present moment, to wholly captivate attention and energy. NOISE is a powerful remedy created to excite a sense of community and togetherness anchored by our primal connection to rhythm.
With 100 drums sending sound waves vibrating through the air delivering an aural punch only matched by the power and force of Dancenorth’s Ensemble.
NOISE is a monumental celebration of sound, rhythm, and dance.
