Gary Lee and Audience Members with Demi Sorono
 
Demi Sorono never imagined that she would one day become a prominent figure in the Australian dancing industry; not just for her dancing ability, but for the way has inspired so many. As young girl from the Philippines who traveled to Australia with limited English, she worked hard and shimmied her way into national television with her dancing abilities and her captivating personality.
 
Demi is one of Australia’s favourite dancers and since her debut on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ in 2008, Demi has been busy.
 
Her show, A Touch of Grace: Shadow Warrior reflects on vulnerability and courage through the difficult times she has encountered and finding beauty and strength from the experience. She takes on a journey from when she was still a young child, to her life at present time.
 
This show is intimate and gives rare insights into Demi’s life – one riddled with challenges, self-doubt, bad relationships, interweaved with joy, hope and good friendships.


In this one hour show, Demi shares her story with us through hip-hop, breakdancing, physical theatre and song. There is a special moment when Demi stops speaking and narrates a beautiful spoken word through sign language.
 
This one woman show is a celebration of resilience, and is a beautiful tribute to mothers everywhere.
 
Choreographed, Song Lyrics and Performed by: Demi Sorono
Directed and Choreographed by: Gerard Veltre, Phunktional Limited
Original Score by: MC Julez
Animation: Sebastian Fowler
 
A Touch of Grace, Shadow Warrior is currently showing as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Show ends Sunday 26 September 2015.
