Event description

Description

A Place To Land is a community dance performance showcasing local stories, of place, belonging, migration and home.

A collection of short moving stories featuring local amateur performers working with poetry, story-telling, dance, music and physical theatre.

Held over two evenings in August at New Futures Creative, this is a community performance event not to be missed.

This is a free event, but RSVPs are essential.

---

This is an open performance event created for and by the local community.

So we would love you to get involved!

You can be involved as a writer, poet, story-teller, performer, dancer, or all of the above.

You can submit a story, poem or an idea for a dance that you would like to perform yourself or have performed by others.
We welcome you to submit or perform a story in any language you like!

No experience necessary. We welcome performers from all background and styles, whether traditional or contemporary, professional artist to total amateur.
We're not interested in your experience or technical skill, we're interested in your creativity, realness, rawness, and in the story that you have to tell.

We will provide a series of free workshops and basic dance training to support you to develop skills to express your idea or be involved in the performance as part of a group piece.

We welcome anything that relates to the theme: it might be personal, political, critical or humorous. It should be no longer than 5 minutes and the final performed piece MUST have a core focus on movement.

This event is proudly supported by Moreland City Council and hosted by New Futures Creative.

Please note: anyone can be involved, but we do have limited space for performers and would like to celebrate the local community of Moreland and lesser heard voices. So if you live or work in Moreland, are a senior member of the community, identify as Indigenous, LGTBIQ or as someone with a disability, or have recently arrived in Australia, let us know this when you submit. We’d love to make sure there is space for you to tell your story.
