THE LOST DANCE PROJECT

The Lost Dance Project (TLDP) is an investigation and comment on the rise of a digital generation. It speaks to the effects of social media on interpersonal relationships and our ability to communicate, and the need to cultivate physical human interactions and connections despite both of these things.

Premiering in Mparntwe/Alice Springs in 2018, TLDP saw the CBD activated with offerings of live dance activity and visual street art, enticing the unassuming passersby and art sleuths alike to lose themselves in an adventure and be found alongside their fellow townsfolk at a secret location. Here they witnessed the premiere season of a new dance work brought to you by local dance makers Madeleine Krenek and Frankie Snowdon (The Perception Experiment, Alice Can Dance) and a team of celebrated national collaborators. 

This project was proudly supported by The Australia Council for the Arts, The Regional Arts Fund, The NT Government through the Department of Education and Territory Families, Rooster Concept Construction and Sadadeen Primary School and partnering organisations Watch This Space ARI, Red Hot Arts and Araluen Arts Centre.
