“On Course” 2019: choreographic project for tertiary dance students


Application form at the end of this page

On Course is a choreographers’ project for tertiary students: to develop your artistic voice, leadership, and audience relationship. You get an opportunity to develop a short work, with two public performances.  QL2 Dance will support you: by timetabling choreographers, dancers, time, rehearsal space and performance venue; with production and marketing; and by challenging and guiding you. On Course is for students at university or university-level courses (including equivalent courses overseas, and NAISDA). You can be in any year. A panel will select the participating choreographers from the applications received.

On Course is a great opportunity to break out of the constraints of study, to work in a non-assessed, critical but supportive environment. You can develop and test choreographic and theatrical ideas and processes; and work with dancers and choreographers from around Australia to build your dance network. Continue reading

FILLING THE SPACE – Quantum Leap at the Playhouse Season – 8-10 August 2019

Filling the Space_A2 Poster_V1 smaller

In FILLING THE SPACE, the Quantum Leap Ensemble explores the dynamic relationship of body and architecture. It breaks open the frames and borders that guide our movement in and out of space/s and playfully manipulates our emotional relationship to them. The theatre stage becomes a world of potential, of space filling and emptying, of new cosmic dances.

Directed by Artistic Director Ruth Osborne and Acting Artistic Director Steve Gow the dancers have worked with celebrated choreographers and QL2 Alumni James Batchelor and Eliza Sanders and Artistic Director Ruth Osborne.
