Australian Dance Theatre (ADT) has announced a special online-only season for 2020. Every fortnight beginning Friday 1 May, at 12pm ACST (UTC +9:30), the company will be streaming one of Artistic Director Garry Stewart’s most well-known works for a 48-hour period. The digital season, ADAPT, will be offered free-of-charge.
The company has stated, “Like all of our arts colleagues in Australia and around the world, ADT has been greatly impacted. We have had to cancel all of our major events for 2020, including an international tour, seasons in Adelaide and Perth, months of our popular dance classes and our Youth Ensemble. Plus, our home, The Odeon, is closed for the foreseeable future. When this crisis clears, we are 100 percent confident that ADT will continue to create exceptional contemporary dance and that The Odeon will once again be South Australia’s dance hub, filled with dancing of all kinds performed by dancers of all ages.”
ADAPT will include works such as The Beginning of Nature, Be Your Self, G, Devolution, Held, The Age of Unbeauty and Birdbrain.
You can sign up to view ADAPT for free on the ADT website, and access to the stream will come directly to your email inbox.
