Bold in its vision and deeply evocative, Lake literally floods the entire performance area to create a visually stunning and highly engaging dance theatre work. A seamless fusion of visual design, video projection, an original score and Wilson’s acclaimed choreography, Lake explores our fascination with and fear of water, a medium that can be at turns breathtakingly beautiful and a force of indiscriminate destruction.
Serene, calm, haunting, and menacing, Lake takes audiences on a journey through their primal response to sparkling reflection and murky depths; to intense beauty and chilling isolation; to utter wilderness and timeless myth.

“Wilson has broken new ground in Lake”
Denise Richardson, Dance Australia
“Don’t think you need to be a dancer to appreciate this work. You just need to be human. See it tonight before she leaves it, re-casts her role in it and takes this stunning piece around the world to challenge humans everywhere.”
Xanthe Coward, XS Entertainment
“Lake has the potential to be a true crossover dance theatre work. I hope it has another life.”
