Welcome to Dancehouse,
Dancehouse is the centre for independent dance in Melbourne. Through its programs of residencies, performance, training and research, Dancehouse is a space for developing challenging, invigorating, and socially engaged moving art. Dancehouse is a genuine tool for the dance-maker, a catalyst for developing new audiences and a facilitator of meaningful alliances and mobility schemes, in Australia and internationally.
Let's get physical!
It is not everyday that you laugh your heart out in movement-based and contemporary dance shows.
Visiting Swiss artists Delgado Fuchs are bringing to Dancehouse their ridiculously long titled duet which is the very exception. A subtle combination of witty, self-deprecating sense of humour spiced with just the right amount of erotic touch, their show is a refreshing reflection on the dictatorship of perfect bodies and the narcissistic relationship we sometime have with ourselves.

Sharing the evening, local wonders Debra Batton and Catherine McGill will take you on a wild ride – different every evening since completely improvised – and plunge deeply into the personal, the public, the ever so exposed and the ever so concealed.
Speaking of which, make sure you grab a copy of the new Diary, which looks into the body in the raw and investigates what a naked body can say that a clothed one cannot. Inspired by the recent cases of censorship in Australia, it brings together an exceptional bunch of contributors and some fascinating insights into the nudity debate.
