An initiative of OzAsia Festival, the inaugural Australia-Asia Dance Lab in 2017 brought together 11 professional choreographers from across Australia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong to share their skills and explore opportunities to develop, collaborate and initiate new international projects.
Facilitated by the Dance Hub’s Leigh Warren, Dance Lab is designed as a program for established choreographers who already have a national or international profile.
The selected participants set their own agenda for the Dance Lab more so than following a prescribed program and are intended to participate in each year of the three year program.
Dance Lab is a safe environment in which the established choreographers shared knowledge and safely exchange ideas and potentially develop new projects with each other which can be supported by OzAsia Festival.
Occurring over three years, 2019 is the final year of Dance Lab.
