Slow Dances for Fast Times

This March, Carriageworks presents a new work by critically acclaimed choreographer Martin del Amo: Slow Dances for Fast Times. Featuring 12 individual dancer performances, each set to a distinct soundtrack ranging from pop favourites, dance anthems of the last 50 years to operatic arias. 

Del Amo has been described by the Sydney Morning Herald as someone who 'runs his own race as a performer, engaging the audience with the familiar yet provoking thoughts beyond our everyday experience." Tickets all $35 in keeping with the 'one price for all shows' policy inducted by Carriageworks for 2013.

Respected Australian artist Julie Rrap has been announced as the new curator of the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize 2013. Rrap follows in the footsteps of former curators Imants Tillers and most recently Lindy Lee and will select a list of around 20 contemporary Australian artists to present work for the 2013 Prize which will be exhibited for the second consecutive year at the National Art School Gallery in Darlinghurst, Sydney. 

The Prize has a unique model in that the invited artists are each required to select an emerging artist to present work alongside them in the exhibition. In this light, it seeks to encourage mentoring relationships between younger and more established generations of artists. The Prize will be announced on 2 May 2013 with an exhibition of all works presented, free of charge, at the NAS Gallery until 1 June 2013.
