March Dance

Date: 30 Jan 2019

A new month-long contemporary dance festival, March Dance presents over 50 dance events in 31 days by nine companies and 45 artists.

In addition to performances, dancers and enthusiasts alike will have the chance to engage in workshops, classes, residencies, sharings, forums and talks throughout the month of March.

March Dance is an initiative of Critical Path, DirtyFeet and ReadyMade Works (Independent Dance Alliance) who have joined forces to deliver this new festival.

“Our aim is to increase the awareness of contemporary dance in Sydney, and to share the amazing work being done by Sydney artists,” says festival manager Anthea Doropoulos. “NSW is the only state without a dance festival, [and] for a city that is so vibrant and rich in culture the dance sector has been missing out.”

Among the performances on offer in March Dance is Recital, a unique double-act, directed by the highly acclaimed Melbourne choreographer-director Gideon Obarzanek, presented by Form Dance Projects and Riverside Theatre. It features three-time APRA Art Music Award winning percussionist Claire Edwardes and Helpmann Award winning contemporary dancer Richard Cilli.

Independent artists Omer Backley-Astrachan, Imogen Kelly, Callum Mooney and Patricia Wood are presenting new dance works with the support of The Flying Nun by Brand X at East Sydney Community and Arts Centre. These artists will share works on landscape, love, death, time, dreaming and tragedy.

Happy Hour will feature three short works presented by ReadyMade Works at their Ultimo studio. It promises a unique hour of dance that celebrates the vibrancy of dance taking place in Sydney, curated by ReadyMade Work’s new caretakers, Patricia Wood, Adelina Larsson and Rhiannon Newton.

DirtyFeet Alumni artists Emma Harrison, Brianna Kell, Rhiannon Newton and Ivey Wawn will share new solos in development at the East Sydney Community and Arts Centre in Darlinghurst.

PACT Salons curated by Carla Zimbler is a one-night mini-festival which will be held at PACT’s Erskineville headquarters, showcasing new works by Sydney’s most compelling early career performance, visual and media artists.
