dance out there is very excited to hear that Mobile States are putting together two tours for 2011:
• A conventional tour of a single work;
• A contemporary performance event featuring multiple works of diverse genres & formats
Excited because it means that audiences (like my good self) will get to see some fantastic new Australian work, but more excited for the artists who will be involved.
Touring around Australia is never easy, but the support of well organised, government funded bodies like Performing Lines makes it slightly more achievable. Previous Mobile States tours include Dancenorth's Underground, Lucy Guerin Inc's Love Me and Back to Back's small metal objects.
So, to all my dear movement-based practitioners, get busy and send in your proposal! Applications close February 8, 2010. See www.performinglines.org.au for more details.
