Out of the Studio

Out of the Studio is back in 2017, with choreographers Matt Cornell and Thomas E.S. Kelly presenting first drafts of new dance works with performers and collaborators Tiyan Baker, Mikaela Carr, Lauren Eiko, Jessica Holman, Vanessa Marian, Libby Montilla, Taree Sansbury and Kassidy Waters. 

The act of dancing is embedded in the shaping of our shared cultures. The works presented will delve further into this notion and make comment on how the act of dancing brings people together to co-exist, how this has been happening throughout history, and how this is continuing in our culture today.

The Program

Out of the Studio is a program supporting choreographers and dancers at the beginning of their careers.

The program is an opportunity for artists to further develop ideas they have explored with DirtyFeet and to present a raw, first draft of their work to audiences at Shopfront Arts Co-Op.

The idea is to bring simple staging (basic lighting, costumes, sets and props) into the equation early in the development of work, to bridge the gap from the studio to the theatre. Out of the Studio provides audiences with an unusual insight and important role in making a dance work, by bringing them into the theatre in the early stages so that their experience and feedback becomes an integral part of the process. The low-key performances are opportunities for experimentation, feedback and discovery in the theatre space; a place from which new Australian dance works can grow.

The program made its debut in 2014 with choreographers Rob McCredie and Sarah-Vyne Vassallo and continued in 2015 with works presented from choreographers Rhiannon Newton and Rosslyn Wythes. In 2016 new works were created by Brianna Kell and Ivey Wawn. For more information on each work, see the images below.
