Youth project: Animalis Instinctu

Join us in November for special performances choreographed by local young people. Working with Animalis director and choreographer Dane Hurst, young people have used art, performance and spoken word to explore their responses to the themes of violence. Formed from their own individual perspectives, the unique choreography that results will be performed by a solo dancer, Stephen Quildan, with the young people's vocals accompanying the music.
Performances will be at 1.30pm and 2.30pm every Sunday throughout November, and at the Gallery Late on 23 November. Each performance lasts 8 minutes.
