In situations of extreme stress, who would you turn to?
In tumultuous times, communities come together to support and grow.
THE ZONE is an explosive dance work, created by Co3 Contemporary Dance’s Artistic Director Raewyn Hill, that explores the notion of community forming in extraordinary circumstances.
Profound yet playful, the performance chronicles the creation of community told through Hill’s stunning movement language.
Artistic Director and choreographer Raewyn Hill is joined again by music collaborator Eden Mulholland to play the original live score, and world renowned Japanese architect Satoshi Okada joined the creative team as set designer.
“Hill delivers another fiercely distinct spectacular that combines all elements of design as well as the artists’ dance skills to amaze, delight and astonish audiences.”
“Fast-paced and intense, THE ZONE is an hour of dance power, bursting at the seams with 11 whirling, twirling, writhing, twisting dancers… THE ZONE showcased some of the outstanding talent our State has to offer.”

“THE ZONE is high octane stuff. Mulholland and the 11 dancers are to be congratulated on a captivating performance. Kudos to all – this is festival-level work. Don’t miss it.”
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN
“Hill’s team of dancers have never looked so confident, so easily proficient. In blending an exceptional musical score with evocative, dynamic movement, Hill has created a work as compelling as it is inspired.”
“Mulholland, Howett and Okada do a remarkable job of framing Hill’s mesmerising balance of carefully observed behaviour in the face of natural disaster, and the surreal images created by its impact.”
