Dance in Cool Spaces 2014
Tracks Dance is exploring new ways to place performance into public spaces, making them come alive to performers and audiences alike. The build up is around the corner and the search for COOL takes on a significance bordering on survival tactics!
Make a Dance in a Week - project 1
Movers aged 9-18yrs participated in making a dance and performing it in a week.
Choreographer Jess Devereux assisted by Kelly Beneforti worked during the Term 3 school holidays with two groups (primary school age, and secondary school age) to devise, rehearse and perform two new contemporary dance works. The five-day intensive program was specially designed for young people who are passionate about dance, and who wanted to participate in a choreographic process leading to performance.
