Escaped from uni to show you what they’ve been doing: “On Course”

On COurse 2014 flier stamper#2 1 1200And all of a sudden it’s December — and so young dance creators from around Australia and New Zealand have escaped from university to come to Canberra and show you what they are up to. Our “On Course” program gives them a great opportunity to work with their peers from round Australia. They have been exchanging notes about their courses, but more importantly  getting inspiration, building connections, and developing their work outside the constraints of course requirements.

Book early, don’t miss out!

Come along on Saturday or Sunday (13 & 14 December) and you will see seven new short works, each less than 10 minutes. Some were created just for On Course. Stay for the forum afterwards if you want, and find out where they are from and where they are going.
