March Dance Opening Event 2023


WHEN: 6PM-8PM 1 Mar 2023 –


VENUE: 107 Redfern

“At its heart, March Dance is about providing a platform for independent dance in Sydney, elevating self-produced, independent work and creating a context in which ideas and practices can be shared and presented in dialogue with other work. As such, it's exciting to have such a mix of performances, residencies, talks and workshops, offering artists and audiences an opportunity to engage with a range of contemporary dance artists and practices at various stages of the making process”. -Festival Manager, Matt Prest 

The festival will kick off with a free launch event including drinks and short performances, sponsored by Young Henry’s.

Supported by the City of Sydney, from March 1-31, over 100 artists will take part in the festival, including 11 companies, 10 organisations and 27 venues across Sydney. The program includes 16 residencies, 18 performances, 5 workshops, 23 dance classes, 1 sharing and 4 talks.
