Canberra Dance Theatre established the GOLD company in 2011 – a group of over 55's who love life, dance and culture. Initially conceived as a 10 week project the GOLDs have become a dedicated company of people exploring movement and choreography to stimulate heart, mind and soul.
Life is a work of art will be a processional performance leading the audience through the National Gallery of Australia, as GOLD dancers perform short pieces created in response to works of art in the Gallery. The dance pieces will be created by four choreographers – Canberra Dance Theatre's Artistic Director Liz Lea, Jane Ingall, Elizabeth Cameron Dalman and Indigenous choreographer Tammi Gissell. The performances will also include members of Canberra Dance Theatre to guide the audience through the space.
Canberra Dance Theatre celebrates its 35th Anniversary in 2013. The company's 30th Anniversary was also celebrated at the National Gallery of Australia and CDT is delighted to be able to continue its relationship with one of Australia's leading cultural institutions. Through Life is a work of art Canberra Dance Theatre and the National Gallery of Australia are committed to a project that engages the Canberra community, continuing a legacy of partnership and high-quality arts practice.
Life is a work of art - Celebrating legacy, cultures, art and the elders of Canberra and the world.
