Alice Can Dance: thinking their moves

 

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.

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.
