STRUT offers sustained exposure to world-class dance techniques and choreographic methodology in order to enrich the body’s range of practice and help ignite and inspire development. Usually quarantined to major dance organisations these artists and their work is now available to the independent dance sector exclusively through STRUT.

2019 will witness a deepening of our partnerships with some of the most pertinent and visionary artists around Australia and the world - Crystal Pite/Kidd Pivot (CA), Hofesh Shechter (IS/UK), Maxine Doyle (UK) and Stephanie Lake (AU).

Sustained exposure to these techniques, as core ongoing training, will be supplemented by a focus on current contemporary technique, physical theatre disciplines and improvisation from the likes of Melanie Lane (AU), Adena Jacobs (AU), Dada Masilo (ZA), Michael Keegan-Dolan and Gideon Obarzanek (AU). The latter three artists are part of our ongoing relationship with the Perth Festival through its Festival Connect program.
