You Are Here Festival – Dance!

published on 07 March 2014

The You Are Here Festival has announced a quirky, intelligent program featuring the best of Canberra’s diverse independent and experimental arts and culture.

 

In 2014, supported by funding from ArtsACT, Events ACT and sponsorship from Canberra CBD Limited, You Are Here is presenting yet another packed program of events from experimental and emerging artists, musicians, theatre makers, dancers and other creative communities. And dance!

Watch out for:

 Admit One with Tanya Voges and Alison Plevey 14 March

Admit-one is an intimate, site specific, interactive performance work combining dance, theatre and installation. Personal, reactive and responsive, a single audience member is invited to uncover something of themselves directing and guiding the experience that unfolds. Independent solo artists Tanya and Alison are concerned with the impact of solitary and one-on-one creative practice, both process and performance, and blur the line between performer and audience member. Date: Friday, 14 March 2014, Time: 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Venue: The Money Bin, Petrie Plaza, next door to Cube and Smoque, opposite the Labor Club and near the Merry-go-round. You need to book - one person at a time, for 8 minutes!

 

The Exorcism of Megan Clune and Angela Goh with Angela Goh and Megan Clune   15, 16 March

The Exorcism of Megan Clune and Angela Goh is a performance which simultaneously reproduces and annihilates itself, becoming possessed in order to save itself. All of the music which has ever been learnt by the musician Megan Clune, and all the dance which has ever been learnt by the dancer Angela Goh, is transformed through the ceremony of exorcism. It interrogates ideas of authenticity and authorship, and reveals the work of the performer and the expectation of the audience. It steals from everywhere and owns everything, in order to conjure up history and channel a new future. Date: Saturday 15, Sunday, 16 March 2014, Time: 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm, Venue: Canberra Museum and Gallery, Corner London Circuit & Civic Sq

 

Square Nebula with Jake Kuzma and Kathleen Lott   17, 18 March

Square Nebula is a tribute to our old friends the circle, the square and everything in-between. Viewing our appreciation of the order that comes from geometric shapes and our excitement in the chaos when the structures lose their stability. Kathleen Lott and Jake Kuzma are the Square and Circle as they perform in front of a colourful moving projection creating a dance and multimedia journey from a simple circular cell to the edge of the universe. Date: Monday, 17 March 2014, Time: 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm, Venue: Gallery 4, Canberra Museum and Gallery, Corner London Circuit & Civic Square Date: Tuesday, 18 March 2014, Time: 8:00 pm – 8.30pm, Venue: Gallery 4, Canberra Museum and Gallery, Corner London Circuit & Civic Square

 

Elevate with Amelia McQueen, Natalie Abbott, and Janine Proost 19 March

Elevate lifts you up, shakes you up a little, and leaves you wondering whether yesterday’s normal could be tomorrow’s insane. This interactive dance performance stretches the space of social expectations through tactile exchange and shifting modes of interaction. The three performers meet you with their toolkit of subtle – and if you’re up for it, less subtle – methods to unlock physical boundaries, expand your perception of reality, and create a greater sense of connection. Date: Wednesday, 19 March 2014, Time: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Venue: Gallery 4, Canberra Museum and Gallery, Corner London Circuit & Civic Square
