THE indepenDANCE PROJECT
As proud members of Queensland’s dance community, Phluxus2 Dance Collective know it is vital for artists to collaborate, investigate and challenge practice. Now in its fourth year THE indepenDANCE PROJECT team welcome dancers, choreographers, collaborators and creative risk takers to join us in creating new work, new partnerships and new dance discourse.
For a up to nineteen days, across November and December each year indepenDANCE offers up to four choreographers, dancers and other creatives access to space, equipment and daily training to create, experiment and collaborate on new ideas in a creative development intensive, culminating in an open studio showing of their discoveries.
IndepenDANCE challenges artists to think outside the square, shatter the square, get rid of the square and question if the square should be a square at all. We look for unique ideas that capture our imagination, challenge practice and offer distinctive vision.
IndepenDANCE provides bespoke mentoring with artists such as Nerida Matthaei, Liesel Zink and Gareth Belling in the creation process and throughout the project.
Through this project we offer a platform for dance artists to engage in new ideas and conversations, recontextualise boundaries and assist in further strengthening the independent dance community.
APPLICATIONS FOR 2017 have now closed. SHOWING of this years new works is set for 8th December. Bookings link to be released soon.
