Dance Massive

Now in its fourth incarnation, Dance Massive 2015 brings you over 40 curated dance shows, events and activities over 13 days, including bold new works, workshops, networking opportunities and special events.

 

This beautifully hand-crafted program will introduce new ways of thinking about contemporary dance. It will surprise, challenge, entice and dare artists and dance-lovers from all over Australia.

Dance Massive has seen bold works, sell-out seasons and a coming together of artists and dance-lovers from around Australia.

The Dance Massive consortium: Arts House, Dancehouse and Malthouse Theatre in association with Ausdance Victoria are pleased to announce their commitment to programming dance works, events and activity for Melbourne’s Dance Massive 2015.

Dance Massive exists as the concurrent programming and scheduling of contemporary dance works and events across three Melbourne venues.

These venues, Arts House, Dancehouse and Malthouse Theatre are centrally located in Melbourne and have an established history of programming new contemporary dance works for both Melbourne and Australian audiences.

During Dance Massive, the consortium partners come together to share resources, collaborate and promote their seasons and programs under the Dance Massive banner.

Dance Massive is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and Creative Victoria.

National Dance Forum 2015

This National Dance Forum will focus on the inherent concerns and realities affecting current professional practice in Australia

 

 

National Dance Forum invites Australian dancers, makers, researchers, writers, directors, producers, advocates and educators to participate in the most significant platform for dialogue across the Australian contemporary dance sector.

In 2015 the National Dance Forum seeks to

  • instigate intelligent and insightful engagement between Australian dancers, makers, researchers, writers, producers, advocates and educators
  • create the most significant platform for dialogue across the Australian contemporary dance sector
  • connect Australian artists with local, national and international communities
  • recognise the responsibility to acknowledge the past whilst asking important questions about the future of Australian dance practice
  • provide an immersive, participatory experience, offering delegates a rich and valuable opportunity to inspire new ideas and/or refresh existing ones in an environment tailored to complement the unique qualities of the dance sector.

 

NDF2015 will address the inherent concerns and realities affecting current professional practice in Australia and will be framed by three specific lines of focus:

  • Transforming the form: changing structures and their effects
  • The subtleties and nuances of innovation.
  • Discourse: How is dance written about, spoken about and communicated?

Essential for all dance makers and artists to be part of the national conversation.

POST PHASE. Chloe Chignell & Timothy Walsh

12-15 FEB. POST PHASE. CHLOE CHIGNELL & TIMOTHY WALSH. THE COURTYARD STUDIO

 

Chloe Chignell is returning to her home town of Canberra to present a work in which she is both a performer and a choreographer. Post Phase: the Summit is Blue, in which she works with fellow choreographer and performer Timothy Walsh, uses the metaphor of scaling an ice-capped mountain to explore ideas of physical endurance and beauty. It was first performed at the Melbourne Fringe Festival last year.

 

 

POST PHASE: The Summit is Blue is an urgent undertaking, a departure point, a pursuit for transition and a hope for an arrival. A pursuit bound to fail; the dancers push their limits. Using a metaphor of scaling an ice-capped mountain the dance explores physical endurance, beauty and their changing relationship. A mountain of ice glimmers in the space, melting, changing state, and reflecting the light. The sound is so persistent the rhythm becomes a texture, filling the air with kinesthetic experience.
