This unique sensory experience explores the volatility of the natural world in the age of the Anthropocene.

23 Nov Symbiosis: In development

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text] We are in the process of creative exploration in the development of a new site-specific episodic dance work set amid the Botanic Gardens.   The human species are awakening to the volatility of the natural world in the age of the Anthropocene. Symbiosis draws from plant and human biology to invite a crucial reflection on the human-ecological relationship through an embodied study of three types of symbiosis; parasitism, mutualism and commensalism. Through choreography, music and somatic and sensory experience, Symbiosis re-positions the human as a part of nature, and within it, the response-ability we hold in guiding these fragile relations. Experienced as a ‘tour’, audiences adventure in groups to not just witness, but to collectively move, sense, be ‘with’ the work and its themes, immersed in the environment around them.

26 Oct Move to Zero 2.0

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text] The Earth is warming at an alarming rate, causing adverse affects to ecosystems. Present and future generations, risk the loss of a healthy planet and important cultural and environmental legacy of our past. Human induced climate change, including the production of Co2 emissions, are large contributors to these detrimental changes. Taking responsibility for change we can move to reduce and counteract these negative impacts. As an artist-activist company, we devised a movement for this change Move to Zero first in 2018 with four short films and in 2020 Move to Zero 2.0, three films each with a focus on transport. Strut Your Stuff Vehicles are responsible for over 60% of emissions in the ACT, producing around 2.4 metric tonnes of carbon per car per year. So why not ditch the keys and Strut Your Stuff! Walking to and from your destination, or to the bus or tram, is not only good for the environment, it is oh so good for you! Snatch up 30-60 mins of exercise a day while you walk through the street, park or neighbourhood. Along the way meet up with a friend, have a chat on the phone and take in the natural...

07 Jul Lake March

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text] ‘Lake March’ is a spontaneous dance and music performance unfolding along the pathways of Lakes Burley Griffin, Ginninderra and Tuggeranong across two weekends in August. Families, friends and exercise buffs of all ages flocking to the Lake to fill up on nature, gossip and sweat will unsuspectingly be treated to an artistic happening, a shared moment of surprise, reflection and joy.   Along the water’s edge, eight dancers continuously move in a spatially distanced procession to live musical accompaniment honouring these watery spaces as places of connection, reflection and for some, trauma.   Ignited by the turbulent context we are experiencing globally in 2020, the artists draw on notions of absence – of human-to-human touch, of a just and stable world, of collective joy – experiences for which we yearn.   Lake March was awarded a Canberra Critics Circle award for 'courageously working within the restrictive conditions generated by Covid-19 to bring an innovative and entertaining production of dance and live music, presented in several outdoor venues, to an audience of dance goers and the wider Canberra Community’.   THE NELKEN LINE World famous director, Pina Bausch’s ‘The Nelken Line’ was released to be performed by citizens across the globe, uniting communities...
