    2-6 October (Term 3 School Holiday)

    Make a Dance in a Week (MADIAW) is Tracks’ once-yearly school holiday program that engages school students in intensive movement workshops and closely involves participants in a fun and challenging choreographic process. The program is facilitated by the Tracks Dance Animateur, Kelly Beneforti and Tracks associated artist Leanne Eltagonde to create a supportive environment that encourages creativity, problem solving, team work, initiative and physical expression.

    Participants will perform the dance pieces created during the week-long program at the Deckchair Cinema on Sunday 8 October as part of a Tracks Dance fundraising film night, screening West Side Story.

    Directed and facilitated by Tracks Dance Animateur Kelly Beneforti, Tracks Dance Company provides a unique opportunity for emerging movement artists and dance-makers to explore the mechanics and creative scope of choreography in a supportive environment. The Program has been running since 2010, and fills a much needed gap in the performing arts sector in Darwin where it is difficult to gain training and experience in choreography.

    If you wish to apply, please submit your Expression of Interest by July 28th 2017.

    An exciting cast of 26 males for our Darwin Festival show, Man Made have started rehearsals this week.

    A big warm Tracks welcome to:

    Aaron Lim, Anthony Burridge, Bernie Trinne, Danial Ireland, Daniel Ferguson, Darren Mccallum, Darryl Butler, David Taylor, David McMicken, Don Mackenzie Ofiaza, Drew Holloway, Ethan Bowden, Glenn Bernardin, John Sullivan, Harry Balaj, Haylen Duncan, Isaac Button, Jordan Bretherton, Josh Mu, Kai Barrett-McGuin, Mark Bunnett, Maurice O'Riordan, Max Higgins, Paul Turner, Will Nery.

    The Cast and Creative Team were asked a few questions about being a man. Click here to read what they said.

    Aged 12 to 70 (something), they will get to show off their stuff in this year’s full length production from August 11th - 20th. Set to perform under the canopy of Frog Hollow’s park trees, Tracks’ all male cast will perform original choreography to ask: ‘what makes a man?’. Led by home grown dancers Josh Mu, Aaron Lim, Jordan Bretherton and Will Nery they will explore four states of manhood – transition from boy to man, the man's ‘prime time’, muscle strength factor and ageing in the skin of men.
