Since 2010, Ausdance WA’s Regional Dance Program has been supporting contemporary dance making and touring in regional WA through a range of programs. Our program advocates for regional dance artists in a variety of ways, and is informed by a belief that there is vast creative capacity inside regional communities with local people skilled to tell their stories.
Contemporary dance is chosen as it can cross barriers of language, ability and age. It expresses contemporary issues in a form that is relevant and uncovers our emotional core.
Future Landings is the production arm of our regional program. Biennially three regional dance artists are commissioned to devise and direct a full-length contemporary dance performance for, with and in their community. The projects are guided by the needs, interests and skills of the towns, and the performances are delivered in a way that benefit all involved.
Future Landings is produced by Ausdance WA with support from the Federal Government of Australia through Catalyst and from the State Government of Western Australia through the Department of Culture and the Arts.
