Out of Bounds
Inspired by the experimental New York dance-scapes of the 80s and 90s and born out of a need to bring the Victorian dance community together in the midst of the global pandemic, Out of Bounds is an exciting artist sharing platform presented by two of Australia’s leading dance companies, Lucy Guerin Inc and Phillip Adams BalletLab.
The initiative provides artists the opportunity for participating artists to receive critical feedback from the two organisations’ respective Artistic Directors, Lucy Guerin AO and Phillip Adams, as well as from attending artists and peers.
We’re excited to announce that the second iteration of Out of Bounds will be presented at WXYZ Studios this April.
Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 April 2022, 12pm – 6pm

PIECES is an annual performance program presented by Lucy Guerin Inc and The Substation, offering choreographers the opportunity to make 20-minute works that premiere in a season at The Substation.
These artists develop their work at WXYZ Studios and The Substation, where studio space is offered in-kind. A strong focus of LGI’s support is directed towards interrogating the process of conceiving, making and rehearsing to develop bold, new ideas that challenge existing notions of dance as well as refine the artists’ own choreographic practices.
Artists are also creatively supported through discussions with Lucy Guerin, The Substation’s Artistic Director Brad Spolding, and LGI’s current Resident Director.

With thanks to the continued support of PIECES from the Angior Family Foundation and City of Melbourne.
