Colin Hay brings his 'Finding My Dance' show to Tanks Arts Centre in Cairns on Friday December 6 and Saturday December 7.
I love the concept of ‘Finding My Dance’ – it is more than music, it is that elusive search for inner fabric that defines who we are – to ourselves, not others.
The title for the tour came from after a show in Mildura when two men, separately, went backstage to seek out Colin Hay. The first was an Aussie chap who wanted to pay a compliment that his version of Down Under was almost as good as the one by Men at Work (?) … the second was an Aboriginal man who asked in a kindly voice, “Where’s your dance? I used to like your dance… you’ve lost your dance mate, you’ve gotta find your dance…”
At the simplest level, if you can dance like there’s nobody watching, you are at one with yourself… at the deeper, more spiritual level it is looking inside to see what makes us tick… and the audience at these shows will be part of Colin’s inner and outer journey.
This is a solo show, where Colin recounts stories about life, people, places – it is a show full of observation, wit & humour, soul and… oh, yes, that’s right, he plays some damn fine music!
This will be two special evening of fun, music and thought.
