In 2016 nine dance makers including Ausdance National members Australian Dance Theatre and Shaun Parker & Company will meet at the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) at the Brisbane Powerhouse Brisbane from 22 to 26 February, where among other contemporary performing arts makers, they will pitch their shows to presenters from Australia and across the world.
Ausdance will be there trying to cover all nine pitches and the showcase performances, tweeting and Facebooking live, and on 23 February we will host a cocktail party for the dance makers and the presenters to meet in a less formal atmosphere to chat and swap contact details.
APAM is Australia’s marketplace for dance makers to meet international and national dance producers and tourers. Every two years, performing companies make pitches, create showcase performances and arrange tours. It is a key event that complements the Playing Australia touring process.
