FrankEnstein and Good Little Soldier by Co3 Australia, The Farm and Mark HowettIn Frank Enstein, battling a physical impairment, Frank creates monsters to fulfil his desire to be normal and to be accepted by others. Can he control what he creates? Who is the real monster anyway? Good Little Soldier explores symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and investigates the tragic reality in the lives of returned soldiers and their families.

Dust by Dancenorth
Through the lottery of birth, we inherit the architecture of restriction and opportunity… In Dust, award-winning Dancenorth takes a deep dive into personal, social, cultural and political inheritance and the way we question and respond to that which has come before us. How do we agitate and illuminate the engineering of our own existence?

Epilogue by Lewis Major Projects
Produced and presented by South Australian company Lewis Major Projects, Epilogue is an evening-length triple bill of work by choreographers Lewis Major and Astrid Boons, performed by dancer, Pascal Marty. Epilogue is at once a celebration, and a deconstruction of, classicism, perfection and the role that beauty has played in the shaping of the Western Canon.

INTER by Liesel Zink
INTER is a contemporary dance and spoken word collaboration exploring themes of inter-connectivity in science and humanity. Three dancers perform under a mesmerizing interactive lighting installation (Jason Glenwright) responding to original poetry by J. M. Donellan. Drawing from research into the micro to macro; the interactions between atoms to the relationship between celestial bodies in space, INTER offers a humbling portrayal of existence while highlighting the importance and power of humans working as one.

The Spinners by Lina Limosani (Limosani Projekts)
A collaboration between Scottish director Al Seed and Australian choreographer and performer Lina Limosani. Taking its sustenance from the Moirai of ancient Greek myth, The Spinners deals with life, death and the choices we make or don’t make. The Morai spin, measure and cut the thread of life, deciding the fates of all human beings.

THE FROCK by Mature Artists Dance Experience (MADE)
THE FROCK is a patchwork of personal recollection and aspiration that expands on ideas of how Australians lived, have loved, why they dance and what makes their hearts sing. Spoken word, song, soundscape, installation, costume and robot are used to create an innovative theatrical experience that embroiders together a tale inspired by photographs from ensemble members in their “best dress”.
