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.”

– (Walter Sorrell, 1967)

Australian Dance Party is led by the vision of dance artist and maker, Alison Plevey, in collaboration with artists, places, time and people.

Our vision is to develop and present innovative dance work that communicates contemporary issues, inspiring a conscious and connected community. As the flagship dance company of the ACT we enable employment for dance artists here.

Our interest is in the unique qualities of dance works and immersions as communicators and vehicles for change.

We imagine adventurous performance experiences involving performers, thinkers and experts in site specific and theatre spaces that challenge audiences to think, question ideals and celebrate life.
