Welcome to Dancehouse,
Dancehouse is the centre for independent dance in Melbourne. Through its programs of residencies, performance, training and research, Dancehouse is a space for developing challenging, invigorating, and socially engaged moving art. Dancehouse is a genuine tool for the dance-maker, a catalyst for developing new audiences and a facilitator of meaningful alliances and mobility schemes, in Australia and internationally.
The DANCE(HOUSE) is buzzing again!
Hello dance(house) lovers out there,
We are back to our normal pace, which means plenty of projects buzzing in our studios, a huge array of classes, some of which have just started and they are already drawing crowds. Our Housemate, Victoria Chiu, is soon back from LA and ready to kick off development of her new work. And Matthew Day loves us so much that he is going to stay here for a while, thanks to the Australia Council Early Career Artist Commissions grant.
Make sure you do not miss our Dance Sites call, a chance to share a creative process with artists and audiences from three different states and Sydney-based choreographer Martin del Amo's workshop on dramaturgical approaches for solo works.
For those of you who missed the Dancehouse International programs' Paris tour to Faits d’Hiver with Sandra Parker and Matthew Day, have a look at the pile of media accolades their work received (a good way to check your French as well ;). While we are finessing the video footage, there are some great pics from Dance Massive and some more reviews to read.
This is yet another opportunity to say how proud Dancehouse was of this program and to thank once more the artists, their crews and the amazing Volunteers (Abigail, Esperanza, Fiona, Katherine, Jacqueline, Juliette, Lauren, Lizzie, Maud, Sonia, Tim, Vanessa) and Dancehouse staff (Bridget, Canada, Darren, Harriet, Katharina, Julia, Michael, Olivia, Steph), perfect as ever.
And before we let you go – have you grabbed your copy of our latest Diary? Have you checked out the new books and tote bag we are selling online now? This will keep you busy till we are back…
