Who knows what hard times the children of today, even in as privileged a country as Australia, will have to deal with in the future as a result of all the challenges facing the world. But those who participated in Alice Can Dance 2019 will surely draw strength from having started to think about them early, writes KIERAN FINNANE.
"I couldn’t imagine that they would dance in this pot-holed, dusty carpark, but I knew to expect the unexpected. This was a production by Madeleine Krenek and Frankie Snowdon, who, with their collaborators, are carving out a space for a more challenging experience of contemporary dance in The Centre." KIERAN FINNANE reviews The Lost Dance Project.
The annual award of the Lofty, to Elliat Rich for high endeavour in the arts, capped off a big year for Watch This Space as it heads towards its 25th anniversary in 2018. 25 years is long enough for a new generation to emerge and so it is at the Space. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
It was called Alice Can Dance but dancing doesn’t happen without ideas and so it was also Alice Can Think, Alice Can Speak, Alice Can Tell a Story. And Alice, in this case, was a big group of school children and a team of artists and choreographers. KIERAN FINNANE went along to the show.
Living theatre requires participation. Turning up, you take more than the usual gamble on whether you will be thrilled or bored. To some extent, you will be given the opportunity to thrill or bore yourself! KIERAN FINNANE reviews.
