Fresh Tracks 2021
Browns Mart Theatre, Darwin
Sep / Nov - Development
4 Dec - Performances
(Fresh Tracks was originally planned for November 6th at Browns Mart Theatre but due to COVID-19 regulations placed across that weekend, Fresh Tracks was rescheduled for Dec 4th. Designed as a Theatre presentation, Fresh Tracks was redesigned into a studio showing).
Fresh Tracks featured new and original choreographic works by local artists working across a range of contemporary dance and movement practices and dealing with a diversity of conceptual and physical ideas.
Fresh Tracks is nestled within the Tracks Development Program, which invests in the continuation of strong dance voices in Darwin through research and development, mentoring, critical feedback, and presentation opportunities. Tracks recognise the importance of supporting and celebrating the talent, potential and commitment of our local artists.
