5 choreographers, 5 new short dance works, 5 days of performances: Pieces for Small Spaces 2012.

Lucy Guerin Inc’s annual Pieces for Small Spaces program is a unique opportunity for five choreographers to challenge their practice, take risks and present a new short dance work as part of a professional performance season. The program aims to support the work of young choreographers and those working outside of company structures.

Each of the artists selected for the 2012 program was encouraged to develop their individual dance practice, devising a distinct and meaningful voice within their choreographic works.

The works they created were performed during the four-night season which took place between 12-15 December 2012 at the Lucy Guerin Studio in West Melbourne.

A post-performance Q&A was hosted following Friday’s performance.

The 2012 program was co-curated by Lucy Guerin (LGI’s Artistic Director) and Anotony Hamilton (LGI’s Resident Director).
