The Party

“Dancing is certainly as old as man and his desire to express himself, to communicate his joys and sorrows, to celebrate and to mourn with the most immediate instrument at his disposal: his body.”

– (Sorrell, 1967, p. 9)

Unique to the political capital, the Australian Dance Party is Canberra’s newest contemporary dance and multi-arts performance company led by the vision of choreographer and performer Alison Plevey.

Like a Political Party, ADP challenges audiences to think, questions ideals and debates current issues. We embody a strength in purpose with a necessary playfulness –  it’s fun! It’s a dance party!

Through creative collaboration the Australian Dance Party develops adventurous performance projects that engage a diversity of Canberra’s performers, thinkers and experts moving across site specific and theatrical venues.

ADP is a not for profit arts organisation with a  philosophy and praxis emphasising the importance of dance and performing arts in the wider experience of our world.
