Phluxus2 Dance Collective presents....
6 new works. 7 choreographers. 22 dancers.
Doors: 7:00pm | Showing: 7:30pm
In a year of unknowns and unprecedented landscapes it is important now more than ever to seek connection and resilience through the acts of dance and choreography.
In 2020 IndepenDANCE welcomes 30 dance artists into empty studios to fill with play, discovery and creative cultivation.
Since 2014 IndepenDANCE has challenged artists to think outside the square, shatter the square and question if the square should even exist. Over an intensive period of 3 weeks local independent artists come together, create, explore, share, shatter and collaborate.
We invite you to come, celebrate our creative community and witness the seeding of new works at this year’s showing.
2020 Choreographers: William John Banks, Meredith Elton, Nadia Milford, Pru Wilson, Sandi Woo and a collaboration between Chiu-Ju Wang and Charles Ball.
2020 Dancers: Georgia Bradford, Maddison Campbell, Alexa Dewar, Soleil Harvey, Makira Horner, Yvonne Huang, Kirrah Jobst, Ashley Joppich, Emilia Lau, Jocelyn McLennan, Erin O’Rourke, Georgia Pierce, Bruna Guarda Ribeiro, Sophie Roberts, Danika Sayce, Asher Simkins, Lauren Sherlock, Maalfrid Soendenaa, Kai Taberner, Rebecca Thorne, Juno Toraiwa and Grace White.
