Inspired by the experimental New York dance-scapes of the ‘80s and ‘90s and born out of a need to bring the Victorian dance community together in the midst of the global pandemic, Out of Bounds is an exciting artist sharing platform presented by two of Australia’s leading dance companies, Lucy Guerin Inc (LGI) and Phillip Adams BalletLab.
This August, 24 independent Victorian dance artists will develop and present a short showing of their recent choreographic investigations to local audiences and fellow artists at LGI’s WXYZ Studios. The initiative provides artists the opportunity to receive critical feedback from the two organisations’ respective Artistic Directors, Lucy Guerin AO and Phillip Adams, as well as from attending artists and peers.
The artists joining the Out of Bounds 2021 August program are: Aimee Schollum, Alec Katsourakis, Arabella Frahn-Starkie, Caitlin Dear, Callum Mooney and Jayden Wall, Carmen Yih, Caroline Meaden, Claire Leske, Gabriella Imrichova, Gabrielle Leah New, Hayley Roe, Iris Elgar, Jacqui Maida, Kady Mansour, Rachel Coulson, Rachel Mackie with Emily Laursen and Charlie Byrnes, Sarah Kosoof and Caitlin Mewett, Sarah Saxon, Sarscha Lewis, Siobhan McKenna, Thomas Woodman, Tim Darbyshire, Tra Mi Dinh, and William McBride.
Out of Bounds will be presented 28 – 29 August. Cost is free, but capacity is limited. To register, visit www.eventbrite.com.au/e/out-of-bounds-tickets.
