14 November @ King Street Arts Centre ·
Presented by Ausdance WA ·
Join us for a discussion on where traditional aboriginal dance sits in the contemporary setting with Simon Stewart and Ian Wilkes.
Join Ausdance WA for a night of wine, cheese and of course DANCE! Our Networking Nights are a great opportunity to connect with the WA Dance Community and expand your knowledge. Following multitudes of requests on this subject, we decided to base the talk on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance.
Learn about the respectful use of Indigenous cultural material and information about life experiences with the basic principals of: respect, Indigenous control, communication and consultation. This is a timely opportunity to question our perceptions and expand our knowledge on how best to integrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. This is a great night for all individuals interested in dance.
