Culture Cruise

"It brought together over half a day so many aspects of Canberra’s cultural life—art, architecture, dance, music, food and wine and more—as well as giving an opportunity to take in the immediate landscape, the expansive lake and the beautiful surrounding mountains, the Brindabellas. While it would be an exceptional experience for visitors to Canberra, I (having lived in Canberra for 50+ years now) found so much to enjoy and think about. There are plans for Culture Cruise to continue in 2023. Do take the opportunity to join a cruise. You won’t be disappointed."

"Australian Dance Party has cleverly subverted a familiar activity into a unique and satisfying artistic experience perfect for savouring as a personal indulgence, or as something to share as a friend or fastidious visitor."

“Brutalist architecture, industrial landscapes and site-specific performance are a few of my favourite things. Ticking all these boxes and more, this show was a seamless blending of place and art.”

“…while its many columns might provide a challenge for performance this monolithic structure will tantalise the imaginations of creative people, just as it has done for Alison Plevey and her Australian Dance Party, who with LESS have created their own memorable site specific work in celebration of its existence.”

“Australian Dance Party (ADP) calls itself a site-specific company these days, and its most recent work, LESS, is an exceptional example of how this approach to the company’s productions plays out.”

“”LESS” is an immersive experience where multi-directional sound input, sensory surrounds and luckily, perfect weather on opening night, blend to create an aesthetically pleasing, meditative experience in a space that offers a canvas for exploration and creativity.”

Symbiosis

Symbiosis

“an unforgettable experience, that is never less than intriguing, often very beautiful, and occasionally even laugh-out- loud.” “Intriguing, tantalising, thought- provoking and entertaining Symbiosis is another strikingly original work from Australian Dance Party.”
