World Premiere of New Work in Gladstone

The Young Dancers of Central Qld (YDCQ) is pleased to announce the world premiere of Power Soup at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum on the weekend of June 28 + 29 this year.

Power Soup is collaboration between The Young Dancers Company of CQ, the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum, and emerging choreographer Fleur Conlon and visual artist Rigobert Pupacher.

This is the first time such a performance will be presented in collaboration with the Gallery, and director Pamela Whitlock said she was intriqued to see the finished work.

Power Soup is a visual dance installation that will move through the Gallery/Museum. Constructed by objects, sound, video and choreography, Power Soup captures a moving individual journey. A dialogue between movement, space and visual art, its maze like effect leads the audience on an adventure through the voices of illustration and movement.

Power Soup will create an atmosphere reflecting on what symbolises power in an industrial zone and how it affects Gladstone.

Dancers from The Young Dancers Company of CQ are currently rehearsing with choreographer  Fleur Conlon.

Chair of The young Dancers Company of CQ , Lee McIvor said she was thrilled  the company was producing such a work.

“This indicates the scope of work we as a company can produce,” Ms McIvor said.

“Given our dancers are still in their teens this is a major step forward in showing the maturity of our dancers.

“The work is a complicated piece of contemporary dance with several story lines woven through it.

“The addition of Rigobert Pupacher and his works to the performance adds a further dimension not seen before in Gladstone.”

The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum is open 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday with FREE admission. It is located on the corner of Goondoon and Bramston Streets, Gladstone. For more information as it is released keep an eye on the website:

Power Soup is supported by the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) a partnership between the Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland and Gladstone Regional Council to support local arts and culture.
