Dining [Uns]-Table is a new solo work exploring dark relationships through an intimate and sometimes confronting, ambient world.

With its deep themes of failed familial bonds and associated psychological and emotional effects, Dining [Uns]-Table uses charismatic movement, dark humour and striking media art.

By distorting the personal with the universal, Dining [Uns]-Table draws you into a not-to-be missed experience of dance-theatre.

The National Dance Forum is the most significant platform for dialogue across the Australian contemporary dance sector. In 2015, dancers, makers, researchers, writers, directors, producers, advocates and educators participated in three days of discussions and dialogue about the inherent concerns and realities affecting current professional practice in Australia. 

Ausdance NSW was able to send 10 NSW artists, both individuals and organizations, to the National Dance Forum in Melbourne thanks to Arts NSW. 

The BUILD YOUR PRACTICE series invites all artists who are interested in exploring the body as part of their art practice. It is a process for dancers, performers and visual artists to explore notions of dance and movement from the basis of Bodyweather. The workshops often include a strong physical workout through the MB (muscle/bone, mind/body) training and an exploration of activities and exercises to increase sensitivity, performer presence and an awareness of stage and space. All levels of experience are welcome to attend.
