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.

‘The Unlearning’ follows a performer through a journey of self-reflection, whilst traversing through societal structures of masculinity. Acknowledging the jarring rigidity of traditional masculine ideologies, he ponders the relationship he holds with himself, commences exploring intimacy and a memory for his body, constantly reassessing, and tending to his relationship with his physical body above all else.
