Rough Draft

Back to all Events

Australian Dance Theatre’s Rough Draft is an annual choreographic showcase of works in development and talks by local independent choreographers, artists and academics.

Rough Draft is a space for free thinking and feeling. These innovative artists invite you to share in their process and witness the growth of their work and ideas as they are evolving.

Presented by ADT’s International Centre for Choreography, Rough Draft takes place at The Odeon and is the perfect context for new work to be shown to the public at a nascent, raw stage of development.

Expressions of interest are now open to present in Rough Draft in August 2020. 

If you have an idea or work that you’d like to be featured, please email Associate Artistic Director Sarah-Jayne Howard at, 200 words max about your work, discussion, film or presentation for consideration.
