DADS – Dance Makers Collective
9 November 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$35
Dance Makers Collective have discovered a secret underworld of Dad dancing, and to create their new show they’ve called in the experts, their Dads.
Interviewing and dancing with their Dads revealed secret headphone and tambourine routines, African Dance lovers, 1960’s garage party dancing and so much more.
The dads won’t be busting their moves on stage in Dads, but audiences will hear the interviews recorded by their sons and daughters, and their musical preferences form the soundtrack to the show. The team have taken inspiration from their family histories, memories of dance, and their own experience of being professional dancers.
It’s not all daggy dad dance moves, although there’s a few, but a beautiful foray into the layman’s perspective on art.
DADS was shortlisted for the 2017 Australian Dance Award for Outstanding Achievement in Independent Dance.
