Artist:

Katie Cooper-Wares, Artist, arts facilitator and environmental educator.

About This Project:

Lovemore Dance Off – Iso-style is a series of ridiculously fun and family-friendly ‘dance’ workshops delivered via Zoom and utilising green screen technology. It is created WITH our community FOR our community and will culminate in a collaboratively choreographed performance piece. We shall perform together online and even one day in the future...in the QUAD! In person! Like with real life people! (date tbc)

This project poses the question: ‘if there was a rave party in your lounge room, what would it look like?’ and/or ‘what happens when the objects disappear but the movements remain?’.

You do not need to be a dancer to participate!

Diversity makes our community rich.

Calling upon people of all ages and abilities!

We have Seated movement options & Closed Captioning.

Saturday nights 6:30pm on Zoom and Facebook live.
