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.


Having kicked off the year with dance icon Deborah Hay's a continuity of discontinuity, how best to conclude it but with the dance luminary and maverick Ros Warby. Back home for a series of improvisation events, we feel very privileged to host this unique double bill featuring an adaptation of Deborah's original No Time to Fly and Court Dance, a new work Ros is currently developing. Trusting the body as mind, Ros Warby’s sophisticated artistry in occupying and devising exclusively solo forms is a rare feast of choreographic and bodily cellular intelligence.

With Ros Warby’s season we are concluding what has been a tremendously exalting and rich year, full of remarkable artists and inspiring works, workshops, writing and talking. We thank those who have been on this ride with us, makers, doers, watchers, thinkers, dreamers. We are what we are thanks to you. With your movements, we can move so many. In a world of no time, we like to think we craft for you a space to fly, to feel, to dream.
