The Wine Project

Java Dance Theatre

There in the glass was the soil of a place and in that soil a soul.

We create something magical and dangerous when we tend the vines, crush the grapes and ferment the juice. The Wine Project invites you into a world of intrigue and aroma, of ritual and revelry of sex and power.
From the ancient Bacchanalian rites to the time-honoured traditions of France, the wine-making process is slow and fascinating.

Recently returned from sell-out seasons in Edinburgh, and across Australia and New Zealand, Java Dance has created a vintage piece of dance-theatre that envelops your senses.


This was one of the most captivating, original performances I have ever seen. It held tension from the first moment and used dance, rhythm, music, mime, movement and interaction wit such originality and innovativeness that I was enthralled from the beginning to end. AUDIENCE MEMBER WANAKA
