Why Dance Matters Now…

Critical Path, in partnership with Delving into Dance, invited those engaged in dance (in whatever capacity) to share thoughts as to why dance matters now…

Together we have commissioned a total of twelve texts for publication from Australian artists and writers. These diverse texts explore  a range of issues from different perspectives.

The six texts by Bronwen Kamanz, Emma Wilson, Jonathan Homsey, Leisa Prowd, Kayley Palmer and Don Asker are now available to view online. Please click on their names to enjoy the brilliant writings of these artists.

The works of the other six artists will go live across March. They are by Raynen O’Keefe, with Adrianne Semmens & Jennifer Eadie, Alison Plevey, Ira Ferris, Shaun McLeod & Simon Ellis and Tsuki Becoming also being part of the digital Interchange Festival 2019.


This project is funded with the support of the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, as well as vital audience contributions.
