“On Course”. Dance, theatre, circus from Australia, New Zealand.

Book online — its only a week now until On Course: short dance, theatre and circus works from around Australia and New Zealand. Twelve choreographers started gathering here at QL2 last week, for two weeks of very intensive work.  And our studio and theatre have been abuzz, 12 hours a day, ever since.
