Surfers of the Glebe

What happens when you mash up a musical instrument of the 19th century with a form of dance from the last century and performers of the present? A good question. The only real answer is provided by the Surfers of the Glebe. They are, once again: Mike Vargas, who has been making music for 57 years. When he sits down at the piano one rarely knows beforehand what’s going to come out of it. And his co-surfers, who took their name from the groundbreaking book Finnegans Wake by James Joyce: dancers Nancy Stark Smith, Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood, Nita Little and Ray Chung. They represent 167 years of experience in contact improvisation in this unique reunion. Together, the quintet creates a non-verbal real-time experience in the spirit of the revolutionary 1960ies and 1970ies: resistant and with subtle humour.
