The dancers of Dance Exchange present the unique work of Australian choreographer Russell Dumas through a series of intimate and discrete showings to small audiences. Throughout the week, Dance Exchange will engage the local dance community with workshops hosted by MAP (Movement Art Practice). The showings’ audiences, workshop participants, and other guests will then be invited to an evening performance/discussion at the end of the week to conclude the series.

Russell Dumas’ choreographic practice spans over three decades, and represents a distillation of concerns from his time as a classical, then modern dancer. His choreography has been described as “sensuous, non-decorative, pedestrian classicism” (Larousse Dictionnaire de la Danse 1999).
