weave, hustle, halt


In response to the current exhibition Dempsey’s People: British Street Portraits, nine dancers reflect the activity, characters and rhythms of the street. As they move, dash and dawdle along the outdoor corridor experience their personas and interactions. What has changed about how people move and intersect in the street today? A mirror perhaps of our changing, fast pace, (dis)connected world?


This project is supported by the National Portrait Gallery, QL2 Dance, NewActon and the Canberra Symphony Orchestra.


Saturday 2 September 11.15am, 12pm and 1pm and Saturday 9 September 12pm and 1pm. Cost: It's FREE!


Outside the National Portrait Gallery along the paved corridor leading to King Edward Terrace
