Feathered and Fierce premieres at Sydney Fringe Festival 2017

A World Champion Samba dancer takes audiences beyond the glamour to the sweat, grit and incredible strength it takes to win in the highly competitive Latin dance world.

Lauren Eisinger and Amy Mills Samba present the “Feathered and Fierce” event, an unorthodox Latin dance show premiering at Sydney Fringe Festival from 5 – 9 September 2017 for five shows only.

Director and Choreographer Amy Mills (World Samba Solo Champion 2015) has led her all female team to three National Samba Championships (2013, 2014, 2016). In their stage debut, they will reveal all in an intimate visceral dance performance, at one of Sydney Fringe’s hottest new warehouse venues.

“Feathered and Fierce will throw back the curtain and reveal the raw strength, failures and dogged determination that it takes to create a moment in the spotlight,” said Mills.

Producer Eisinger is known for her unique and eye-catching stage and circus shows in Australia, including the world’s most eclectic festivals and venues.

“This is Latin dance like you’ve never seen it before,” said Eisinger. “Eight powerful women push their physical and mental limits without restraint. In this stripped back space you’ll see the sweat, hear every breath, feel the camaraderie and find the drive that fuels this world-class team.”

“We are giving audience members a real look behind the scenes, incorporating costume racks, ladders and road cases into a Latin dance, with performers who don’t leave the space throughout the show. We will use the versatility of the warehouse space to stage scenes in and around the audience, resulting in a highly immersive experience,” said Mills.

Feathered and Fierce will feature a soundscape unique to the troupe’s shows: a mix of instrumental Latin rhythms and modern pop music. It will be an up-close and personal experience of the world within the world of competitive Latin dance.
