On Course 2019

Featured

On Course project helps to cross-fertilise dancers from different university dance courses around Australia: 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 Amelia Vanzwol, Caroline De Wan, Caspar Ilshner, Christopher Wade, Gabriel Sinclair, Jason Pearce, Karlia Cook, Lara Dorling, Marcel Cole, Mia Tuco, Otto Kosok, Patricia Hayes Cavanagh & Ruby Ballantyne.

After each performance there will be an optional forum and Q&A with the choreographers and dancers.14 December 7pm and 15 December 3pm & 7pm

“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
