Activating the city with dance
We are relocating our dance studio to the Live Darwin Hub in the Mall from 19 February – 29 April. Our mission is to put movement back into the city with a 10-week program of exciting and innovative events. You can expect to find the vibrant, diverse and ‘fiercely local’ Tracks that you know and love, but on a super-sized scale!
Four local and inspiring dancers will be joining our resident Dance Animateur, Kelly Beneforti for this special program of interactive activities, dance will literally be spilling out into the streets of the CBD. It will be hiding in unexpected corners, activating urban and green city spaces in new and refreshing ways, and providing a junction for ordinary people, passionate amateurs and professional artists to meet and create.
Learn dance in lunchtime drop-in classes, participate in large-scale community dance events, experience original choreographic works in unconventional places, and witness cheeky dance interventions, TRACKTIVATION is here to transform your city with the pulse and rhythm of dance.
Concept and Artistic Directors: Tim Newth and David McMicken
Tracktivators: Kelly Beneforti, Jenelle Saunders, Bryn Wackett, Jordan Bretherton and Madeleine Brown
Performers: including professional and community dancers
