The Pleasure Principle

repress nothing

A compelling new vision from the Jazz Dance Theatre Company IGNITE THE DARK. 

“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.”   ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Ignite The Dark, purveyors of Australia’s dark and sexy jazz dance; bring you “The Pleasure Principle”. A high octane, subversive dance experience filled with fun, sexy, stylized routines about the search for pleasure, no matter the risks, the social stigma, or the indoctrinated guilt. Indulge the pleasure principle. It will leave you begging for more.

Ignite The Dark is a company of Melbourne’s finest jazz dancers featuring the innovative choreography of Alfie Scalia and Daniel Ryan (directors and choreographers of last year’s sell out season of The Earth, The Sea & The Moon).
