On Course 2017: new, short, young, contemporary dance

Update — Bill Stephens review! 


QL2 presents new contemporary dance by dance students from Universities around Australia.  A glimpse into the next generation of contemporary dance and physical theatre.


Artistic Director Ruth Osborne says “With students from WAAPA, VCA, UNSW and QUT, this project helps to cross-fertilise dancers from the different courses: they work together, discuss, challenge, create, perform. Canberra dancers returning from full time study interstate get to reconnect with audiences here. And for audiences, it is a great opportunity to see where young dance artists are going — and in the forum, to hear from them about their work, and perhaps to influence that direction!”

Works by Thalia Livingstone, Alexander Abbot, Nasim Patel, Madeleine Towler Lovell, Alexandra Dobson, Patrick Keogh Walker, Jason Pearce, Mara Glass and Gabriel Sinclair.

After each performance there will be an optional forum and Q&A with the choreographers and dancers.

Here’s a sample of photos from last year’s On Course, by Lorna Sim.  We’re pretty sure this years’ will be completely different!
