SARAH AIKEN / SIOBHAN MCKENNA / GEOFFREY WATSON
Presented by Lucy Guerin Inc and The SUBSTATION
PIECES showcases bold new contemporary dance works by the next generation of Melbourne’s independent choreographers.
In December 2019, artists Sarah Aiken, Siobhan McKenna and Geoffrey Watson presented unique and exciting new works in a six-show season at The SUBSTATION. This triple bill shifted our existing notions of dance in unexpected ways by providing resources for artists to challenge their regular practice and execute their most daring ideas.
PIECES 2019 offered three choreographers the opportunity to make works of 20-30 minutes that will premiere at The SUBSTATION. This refreshed format seeks to enable a deeper choreographic exploration and the space to develop a larger idea.
Preview: 6 December
Premiere: 7 December
