Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

For Now Pieces #6 Catherine and Peter have invited an exciting collection of artists with a rich diversity of style, approach, practice, enquiry, lineage, and life experience. Backgrounds include independent and contemporary dance, street dance, theatre, and physically based improvisational performance. We anticipate an evening that is engaging, wistful, poetic, vigorous, sonic, and textual. An evening of dreams, of vulnerability embraced, of beauty discovered in the unfolding present moment.

Curators: Peter Trotman and Catherine Magill
Collaborators/Artists: Pauline Sherlock, Tony Osborne, Ashlee Barton, Marnie Newton, Shaun McLeod
Creative Correspondent: Noelle Rees-Hatton
