The Main Event performance will showcase new experimental choreographies by some of Australia’s best dance artists developed at The Corner Dance Lab, a 9-day dance workshop program held annually in Federal.
The limited seating performance will be held at Jasper Corner at 7:30pm on Saturday 23 January.
The Corner Dance Lab is led by Co-facilitators Philip Channells (Dance Integrated Australia) and Gavin Webber (The Farm Company) who bring together an exciting line up of dance practitioners, musicians and visual artists from the local area, interstate and abroad.
Local Federal resident Philip Channells said, “once again we’re bringing some of Australia’s most established dance artists together to share our creative practice. It is an important opportunity for emerging and established artists to work together and we’re really excited to show the outcomes to the community.”
This year The Corner Dance Lab in partnership with Arts Northern Rivers also supported a new initiative, The Indigenous Residency Scholarship, which have been awarded to emerging artists, Amrita Hepi, a descendant of the Ngapuhi tribe in Northern New Zealand and the Bundjulung people in Northern New South Wales and Tyrel Dulvarie who is a descendant of the Yirriganydji and Mamu people of Cairns and Innisfail.
While The Corner Dance Lab attracts high caliber artists, it also connects them with emerging dancers with and without disability to challenge themselves physically, intellectually and artistically.
Catering for the event is courtesy of The Rosebank Store’s Fusion Kitchen, highlighting certified organic and locally sourced ingredients, Assamese curries, global flavours with a home style flair. Food will be available to purchase from 6pm. BYO refreshments.
Tickets for The Main Event can be purchased at the door – adults $15 / concession $10. Limited seating available.
The Corner Dance Lab 2016 is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW and is endorsed by the World Dance Alliance. The Indigenous Residency Scholarship is supported by Arts Northern Rivers through the Ministry for the Arts (IVAIS program). Dance Integrated Australia is an Associate Organisation of Ausdance NSW.
