Fresh Tracks 2017
Venue and dates to be confirmed
Following the success of Fresh Tracks in 2016, Tracks Dance Company presents a second series of short dance works in 2017 created and performed by local choreographers, artists and dancers. Fresh Tracks reaches new audiences for Tracks, and brings new audiences to dance, through the annual Darwin Fringe Festival program.
Through the support and presentation of these works, Tracks makes a commitment to the growth of new, independent dance in Darwin. Participating artists begin the creation of their works through the Tracks Development Program, before being offered additional studio space and artistic guidance to undertake further development towards presentation in the Fresh Tracks program.
Fresh Tracks is an opportunity for audiences to experience the physical and conceptual realms being explored within contemporary dance making in our community, and showcases the talent, potential and dedication of our local artists.
Contact Dance Animateur Kelly Beneforti if you are interested in knowing more about Fresh Tracks.

“There’s not a very strong independent contemporary dance sector in the Territory, let alone in Darwin; there are pockets of it and what [Fresh Tracks] did was allowed a focus on that…I would like to see that still being supported, but it growing…to have more independent artists out there going ‘I want to make work’, and trying; it doesn’t always succeed but you have to go through those steps to get there.” – David McMicken on Fresh Tracks 2016
