Event description
'Lake March' is a spontaneous dance and music performance unfolding along the pathways of Lakes Burley Griffin, Ginninderra and Tuggeranong.

About this Event

Families, friends and exercise buffs of all ages flocking to the Lake to fill up on nature, gossip and sweat will unsuspectingly be treated to an artistic happening, a shared moment of surprise, reflection and joy.

Along the water’s edge, eight dancers continuously move in a spatially distanced procession to live musical accompaniment honouring these watery spaces as places of connection, reflection and for some, trauma.

Ignited by the turbulent context we are experiencing globally in 2020, the artists draw on notions of absence - of human-to-human touch, of a just and stable world, of collective joy – experiences for which we yearn.

Lake March is presented by the Where You Are Festival with the support of the ACT Government. With thanks to the support of arts ACT, QL2 Dance, Lorna Sim, Maxim Chartered Accountants, All Insure.
