Lake March

Australian Dance Party

‘Lake March’ is a spontaneous dance and music performance unfolding along the pathways of Lakes Burley Griffin, Ginninderra and Tuggeranong. Families, friends and exercise buffs of all ages flocking to the Lake to fill up on nature, gossip and sweat will unsuspectingly be treated to an artistic happening, a shared moment of surprise, reflection and joy.


Ignited by the turbulent context we are experiencing globally in 2020, the artists draw on notions of absence – of human-to-human touch, of a just and stable world, of collective joy – experiences for which we yearn.

Choreographed by Alison Plevey and Alana Stenning

Autumn Lantern

Australian Dance Party

Dancers and musicians weave movement, music and light symbolic of lanterns lighting the way through festival, or city spaces. Responsive to place and the activity present there, 'Autumn Lantern' playfully reveals the character of the natural and architectural spaces and the choreographies already present within them. Follow them as they thread a mystical, waltz and hum through your event from twilight into the darkness.

WeTubeLIVE celebrates the bizarre, the narcissistic and the occasionally talented, curating 100 live performances appropriated from YouTube. Each performer is presented in a carefully demarcated square—neat and contained with their personal effects and own sound system. The taped square works to create a barrier not unlike a computer screen; viewers walk amid performers without fear of interfering, happy to gaze and gawk as though invisible.
