Fresh Tracks Programme PDF

Now in its sixth year, Fresh Tracks is nestled in the Development Program- which invests in building strong NT dance voices through research and development, conversation, critical feedback and presentation opportunities. Artists have access to the resources at Tracks to develop their practice, present original dance work, and engage in dialogue around their artistry. Tracks recognise the importance of supporting and celebrating the talent, potential and commitment of our local artists.

Fresh Tracks 2022 featured short works and artist talks, through two afternoon showings of new works-in-development. Contemporary dance pieces by Venaska Cheliah, Kate Mornane, Steph Spillett and Bryn Wackett-  the performance works were experimental and diverse in style, investigating solo compositions, video projection, ensemble improvisation as performance, Rasas/States of expression in Indian Classical dance, and personal narratives.

With a view to supporting the ongoing continuity and enrichment of dance practice for local choreographers, Fresh Tracks is driven by the individual artists' curiosities, creativity and physical sensibilities.
Curated in 2022 by Tracks Associate AD Jessica Devereux, Fresh Tracks invited the choreographers to go a little deeper into an idea that may have been stirring for some time. It’s so often the ideas that rattle around inside us for a time, that rise to the surface when we have a chance to pause and dance it.
Proudly presented in 2022 as part of Fresh Weekend at Brown's Mart.
