× 1 / 3 Photo of Nimbus Dance by Megan Maloy 2 / 3 3 / 3 ❮ ❯ Where “Patch of Turf” boils with the earthbound immediacy of biology, evolution, and survival, “Falling Sky,” a full company work for eight dancers, conjures the lofty, spiritual realm of the skies, addressing the intangible implications of a changing climate and natural world to our psyche and consciousness.Award-winning video artists Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger add projected scenic design to “Falling Sky.” Chamber musicians from the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra perform Qasim Naqvi’s scores live for both works, creating an intensely vivid theatrical experience.Also performed at NJPAC will be the return of Dawn Marie Bazemore’s “The After Party,” homage to jazz legends Nina Simone and Nancy Wilson. With vibrant, quick, and spirited choreography and intricate musicality, this crowd-pleasing ode to jazz explores intertwined relationships, dynamics, and joy of movement. Mr. Pott’s “The Glare From These Horizons” will also be performed.Tickets for the evening are available at www.njpac.org/events/detail/nimbus-dance-2019. 1 / 3 Photo of Nimbus Dance by Megan Maloy 2 / 3 3 / 3 ❮ ❯ Nimbus Dance returns to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) on November 14 at 7 PM, accompanied by musicians from the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra (NJSO) in a collaboration that brings together the two acclaimed New Jersey non-profit arts groups. The evening features Nimbus’ world premiere of “Falling Sky,” choreographed by Artistic Director Samuel Pott.“Falling Sky” includes new music commissioned by internationally-recognized composer Qasim Naqvi. The work is performed alongside Mr. Pott’s seminal 2015 dance, “Patch of Turf,” in which a tour-de-force quartet of female dancers manipulate a 12’ x 8’ piece of artificial grass, poignantly revealing both our estrangement from the natural world and insatiable appetite for its resources.
Brisbane is expected to continue to see good rental yields for investors. Picture: Brisbanemarketing.com.au.INVESTOR numbers seem to have fallen off a cliff in southern capitals but Brisbane was expected to buck the trend, according to latest expert analysis.Rental yields in Brisbane – calculated as rent divided by price – have continued to outperform Sydney and Melbourne when it comes to both houses (4 per cent) and units (4.9 per cent), adding to its allure for investors, according to Nerida Conisbee, chief economist of the REA Group.“One factor keeping yields high in Brisbane has been that prices haven’t risen quite as much as Sydney and Melbourne,” she said. “In 2018 we expect investors to continue to look at Brisbane favourably primarily because there seems to be rising rental demand and pricing is far more reasonable.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus21 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market21 hours agoShe said it was likely that rental yields would rise this year.“There are a few things driving this. The first is that prices are expected to remain relatively stable. A big factor driving yields downwards is rising prices and we don’t expect prices to rise as strongly in 2018.“The second is we expect far fewer rentals to enter the market this year – this is because we have now come to the end of a strong run in investor demand. We expect fewer investors in the market this year because of difficulties in accessing finance, changes to many of the incentives to invest, as well as changing sentiment towards housing.”Ms Conisbee warned that since Brisbane has had such a strong apartment development boom, “I can’t see strong rental growth for apartments”.“Houses however are another matter – they will definitely outperform apartments in 2018.”Her picks for good rental yield in Brisbane this year? “We can see on our site that the most in demand suburbs from renters for houses are Fortitude Valley, Windsor and New Farm. If I was looking to buy a rental property in Brisbane I would be looking at houses in those suburbs.”
