DANCEHOUSE 2015 HIGHLIGHTS

"I love Dancehouse.

I'm not a dancer, never trained, but I think contemporary dance is just the raddest. For me it's a place where thinking and moving are experienced together in a really unique way. Dancehouse has been entirely welcoming of me as a newcomer to the community, with really a ordable rehearsal space for me to try out insane new things, take great classes and workshops, and see really cutting edge work. Recent favourites include Luke George'sNot About Face, James Batchelor'sIslandand Sa- rah Aikin’sSet. All totally inspiring. If not for Dancehouse I never would have come along and auditioned for Xavier Le Roy’s Temporary Title 2015, and consequently had one of the most enriching experiences of my artistic life. I also love reading the Dancehouse journal (don’t stop!), particularly liked Alison Croggon’s entry from a few months back. Dancehouse is one of the best arts institutions in Australia, and I was proud to be a member in 2014/15. KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK!"

DANCE MASSIVE

10-22 March 2015

In 2009, 2011 and 2013, Dance Massive saw bold works, sell-out seasons and a coming together of artists and dance-lovers from around Australia. The Dance Massive consortium: Arts House, Dancehouse and Malthouse Theatre in association with Ausdance Victoria are pleased to announce the dance programming, events and activities for Dance Massive 2015.

At the vanguard of contemporary dance, Dancehouse is profoundly committed to presenting rigorous, cutting-edge and challenging research and performance, thus playing a significant role in the development of innovative dance, new audiences and ongoing artistic enquiry.

For Dance Massive 2015, the Dancehouse peer panel has selected a mix of new and existing works, including a dance-on-screen work and an off-site performance.

SET
22-26 July

A HOUSEMATE PERFORMANCE PROGRAM PRODUCTION

Moving from the mundane to the spectacular, from the sublime to the ridiculous, SET distorts and manipulates bodies and objects to playfully reimagine perspective, scale and perception. Choreographed and performed by Dancehouse Housemate/artist in residence Sarah Aiken, SET  is a dance for one body and several objects; a work straddling the absurd and representational, repeatedly shifting how we value simple objects and the body interacting with them, ultimately revealing the human in all that is represente
