Event description

On the last Sunday of the month, Now Pieces offers an improvisational performance evening at Dancehouse dedicated to low-fi public performances curated by and featuring local dance luminaries.

Now Pieces builds on the lineage of Cecil St Studio, a dance studio in Melbourne for 21 years that is now earmarked for demolition. Now Pieces continues a long standing disciplined exploration of embodied performance practice that leads to crafted, spontaneous and artful communication made on-the-go. This monthly event invites a range of intergenerational practitioners who — in one way or another — prioritise movement to incorporate body, sound, vocalisation, memory, image and energy, responding to each passing moment in relation to the space where they are dancing in relation to the audience.

Each month a different curator or collective is invited to host and program Now Pieces.
