Choreographer: Lewis Major

Lewis Major is an award-winning choreographer based between the deep south of regional South Australia and Europe. Not having set foot in a theatre until his mid-teens, he finds it ironic to now be working in the most maligned and misunderstood sector of the arts industry: Contemporary Dance. 

He is the only dance artist he’s ever heard of who can shear a sheep, has danced with Hugh Jackman and travelled to all three axis-of-evil countries. His work is invested in the potential of choreography and performance to inform a cultural discourse of sorts and to enable affective experiences.

As a performer and dance maker, he has worked with and alongside Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Russell Maliphant, Shaun Parker, Hans van Den Broeck/Cie Soit and Australian Dance Theatre.  He was a founding member of Aakash Odedra Company. With an extensive back catalogue of choreographies, he has created over 17 works and staged them across six continents.

Epilogue is at once a deconstruction of and a meditation on, classicism and the role that beauty has played in the shaping of the Western canon. Epilogue is both a lament and a  battle cry; a steadfast rejection of the ravages of postmodernism in the creation of art.
