About Us

Led by Artistic Director Danielle Micich, Force Majeure produces critically acclaimed dance theatre.

The company is based around a collective of multi-disciplinary artists committed to creating stimulating movement-based theatre. Artists include dancers, actors, writers, visual artists, musicians, composers and filmmakers.

Since its inception Force Majeure has created six major works, two collaborative works and a short film series. This highly produced body of work engages with and questions contemporary culture using intelligence, pathos, humour and insight.

The company has toured work to the prestigious Lyon Biennale de la Danse, Place des Arts Montreal, Dublin Theatre festival, the Seoul Performing Arts Festival and has received five major national awards.

Force Majeure is also dedicated to supporting the development of dance theatre in Australia, pursuing opportunities that enable emerging dance theatre performers, choreographers and directors in Australia to flourish.

The company was established in 2002 by founding Artistic Director Kate Champion.

“Force Majeure push the boundaries of what is considered contemporary dance and bring us works that communicate with the audience in a fresh, challenging way.” – Artshub
