GIVE THE GIFT OF CREATIVITY

Back to all Events

June 2020 marks ADT’s 55th birthday. We ask you to give the gift of creativity.

Despite the crises of 2020 we are absolutely dedicated to delivering and launching the inaugural Australian Choreographic Commission in November this year.

With this new program ADT will work with one exceptional Australian choreographer each year, to devise and create a new choreographic work and deliver a season at South Australia’s dance hub and the home of ADT, The Odeon theatre.

This year we are thrilled to launch this program with Alison Currie. Alison’s practice examines the connection between inanimate forms and performers. For this  inaugural choreographic season, Currie is devising a new work called Of All Things.

Award-winning multi-disciplinary South Australian design firm Enoki are enlisted as collaborators and together they will create a tangible middle ground between the animate and inanimate, the mobile and fixed.

Of All Things will be an investigation into the nature of matter where ADT’s dancers and The Odeon theatre will morph, meld, fuse and disconnect.

Celebrate 55 years of outstanding South Australian Dance from ADT by supporting the launch of the Australian Choreographic Commission.
