Dancehouse

Dancehouse is Australia's premier centre for independent dance. Our role is threefold: to advance independent dance artists, to build dance audiences, and to develop the artform itself. With artists and audiences, we are co-creating a context for independent dance, in its diversity, to be accessed and appreciated. Together, we are nurturing dance making and dance thinking; we are building dance literacy and dance's legacy.

    Now Pieces #9 proposes two intertwined events. Firstly, an hour of improvised performance that brings together long-standing pioneering elders in the field, and situates them beside the next generation of young, bright, bold dance-artists. Secondly, Now Pieces #9 throws open the doors to YOU — the audience — and invites participation. In the practice of improvisation is an event called a jam. It happens in music and it happens in dance, so we’ve decided to bring these two closely related fields together to create a music-dance jam that welcomes YOU — the audience — to join it. Following the performance, the jam will be facilitated and held by a family of dancers, and all are welcome to join in an improvised happening. Outcome unknown. Now Pieces #9 runs 5-6pm (performances) and 6-7pm (open jam).
