The World’s Smallest Stage

ADT in collaboration with indigenous dancers and choreographers from Kurruru, the team at Restless Dance Theatre, local independent choreographers and an eclectic range of local musicians, identified in partnership with Music SA, to bring The World’s Smallest Stage together.

The World’s Smallest Stage  sees ten choreographers matched with twelve dancers and ten composers to create a series of new dance works, between 5-10 minutes’ each. Each new dance piece is confined to a living room size area of 2m x 2m, the ideal size for it to be rehearsed by dancers in their homes via computer screen and referencing social distancing regulations that have become a major part of our lives.

The idea was conceived by Garry Stewart, ADT’s Artistic Director, as a direct response to the limitations that arts companies and artists are facing during the current public health crisis.

Although the creative development for this project has progressed in insolation, we will be sharing the final performances for a very special season at The Odeon later this year.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and behind the scenes look into the creative process for The World’s Smallest Stage.

The World’s Smallest Stage is generously supported by the Government of South Australia through the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, The Tanja Liedtke Foundation and Music SA, and is proudly presented by Henschke and Harlequin Floors.
