2008 - it's a wrap

With one day to go before the end of the year, you can now check out my brief summary of 2008 as published in The Age newspaper. To read the full article, click here

For those of you short on time, here's an even briefer summary of what happened in Melbourne's dance scene this year:
  • Our local contemporary dance companies made some great work, though oddly a lot of them relied on text
  • The Australian Ballet were conservative in their programming, as usual, but the dancers were excellent
  • Despite the release of the Australia Council's latest strategic plan, there doesn't seem to much hope of dance becoming a viable full-time career option any time soon
I'd love to hear your thoughts on what happened in Australian dance during the year... post your comments here, email me, or send me a tweet on
