QL2 Dance (ACT), Australian Dance Party (ACT) and Catapult Choreographic Hub (NSW), supported by the National Portrait Gallery collaborate to create a cross generational, cross regional dance project. The collaboration built from YGEN to IGEN, a project which began in 2020 with ADP and QL2 working together across ages and stages of dance artists to create together, learn from each other and be inspired by all that dance brings to their lives – across our lives.   Connecting Stories is a commission of the National Portrait Gallery, with two iterations 'Connecting Stories: Innovation' (April 2022) & 'Connecting Stories: Generations' (June 2022), developed to reflect the exhibition “Shakespeare to Winehouse”.   As performing artists we offer a physical and ephemeral experience of visiting the NPG and the themes within this prolific exhibition, inviting you to feel and think and be kinaesthetically engaged with the importance of people - figures in our world and across time that have shaped it, and the incredible ways artists have evolved to capture their essence.   CONNECTING STORIES: GENERATIONS  25-26 June - 11am, 12:30pm & 1:30pm at the National Portrait Gallery We invite you to feel, think and...

The aim is to dig a little deeper into a process or approach over a three week period, working with a consistent group, extending the creative curiosities and physical development of movers and makers in the ACT. Labs are offered on different days and times to meet both local and visiting professionals differing availability. Often we offer full day labs from 10am-4pm on differing week days and sometimes on Thursday evenings from 7pm-8:30pm. sessions)The labs are held in the studio or theatre spaces at QL2 Dance  at Gorman Arts Centre.
