SPRING DANCE
23 AUG - 4 SEPT 2011

Spring Dance returns in 2011 with some of the world’s most important contemporary dance artists including a thrilling series of firsts. The UK’s DV8 presents the world premiere of Lloyd Newson’s latest work; for the first time in Sydney, the revered Belgian choreographer Alain Platel presents his acclaimed company les ballets C de la B; Australian audiences will be introduced to Israel Galván, the daringly innovative Flamenco artist from Seville; London’s Fevered Sleep will take young audiences into the enchanted world of The Forest and two Australian works acclaimed by critics around the world come to Sydney – Ros Warby’s Monumental and Chunky Move’s I Like This.

Join us for this rich mix of dance alongside a program of films and discussions honouring the legacy of the late Pina Bausch, plus an exceptional program of masterclasses and more.
