Event Description
Behind the Scenes of THE FROCK

Join the Mature Artists Dance Experience in their final rehearsals of THE FROCK before they head off the island for their tour to Japan.

Two of Australia’s foremost dance creatives, Graeme Murphy AO and Janet Vernon AM collaborate with Tasmania’s Mature Artists Dance Experience (MADE) to bring to the stage a dance theatre work like no other.

Spoken word, song, soundscape, installation, costume and machine are used to create an innovative theatrical experience that embroiders together a tale inspired by photographs from ensemble members in their “best dress”. The Frock is a patchwork of personal recollection and aspiration that expands on ideas of how Australians lived, have loved, why they dance and what makes their hearts sing.

“The Frock is neither a dress nor a gown, it is an entity and like other invaders from the ‘mainland’ this frock held unknown consequences – even months in the ‘quarantine of layby’ could not reduce its feral potency.” – Graeme Murphy AO
