5 choreographers, 5 new short dance works, 5 days of performances: Pieces for Small Spaces 2015.

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 five artists selected for 2015’s 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 five-night season which took place between 16-20 December 2015.

A post-performance Q&A was facilitated by Melanie Lane after Friday’s performance and Thursday’s performance was Auslan interpreted.

The 2015 program was co-curated by Lucy Guerin (LGI’s Artistic Director) and Melanie Lane (LGI’s Resident Director).
