DIRTY FEET: OUT OF THE STUDIO

DIRTY FEET has now been around for twelve years and this is the latest season of their OUT OF THE STUDIO.

CALLUM MOONEY’S ‘WeAreSound’ @ ANNANDALE CREATIVE ARTS CENTRE

WeAreSOUND is an upcoming dance event which is the brainchild of Callum Mooney.

The performers will create visual representations of the stuff that goes around our brains as we encounter the machinations of public transport. I would imagine there will be a plenty of room to move with this concept!

The work fuses Physical Theatre, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Comedy.

PLAYING FOR THREE NIGHTS ONLY between November 17 and 19 @ the Annandale Creative Arts Centre, 81 Johnston Street, Annandale.
