Australia’s best choreographers come together in Dance Massive 2017 program

The program will run across ten days, providing cutting edge dance from the likes of Chunky Move, Lucy Guerin Inc, Martin Hansen, Mariaa Randall, James Batchelor and more in world firsts. 

From dancers learning to skateboard, to a work grown out of a residency on Australia’s marine research vessel Investigator, to a large-scale outdoor dance off, to a GIF inspired re-imagining of the future of dance, this year’s program has both artists and audiences alike questioning what is dance, and just how far can it go.

Highlights include Split from Lucy Guerin Inc – a delicate and complex new production that explores the dimensions of space and time – Chunky Move’s Anti-Gravity exploring the ethereal nature of clouds, the GIF-inspired  If It’s All In My Veins  from Martin Hansen and Cockfight – a comical game of one-upmanship between men from Gold Coast-via-Berlin company The Farm and Performing Lines. 

Elsewhere, 32 of Australia’s best dancers will battle it out in a dance-off like no other at Federation Square while trans media artist Shian Law presents Vanishing Point – documenting his experiences of performance in three choreographic works by dance luminaries Phillip Adams, Deanne Butterworth and Jo Lloyd and Rhiannon Newton.
