COMMUNITY CALENDAR

 

Dance Interrogations

Undoing the stereotypes of dance and dismantling the paraphernalia of disability, performers Dianne Reid and Melinda Smith bring their work Dance Interrogations to Footscray Community Arts Centre. Dance Interrogations plays between the formats of art installation and contemporary dance performance, asking the audience to think about the way in which we experience our bodies and inhabit space. Performances July 16-17 and 23-24, tickets $25/20.
