New biennial festival puts dance in the FRAME

FRAME: A biennial of dance will present a broad picture of contemporary dance practices across live performances, talks, labs, films, public programs, and workshops.

Informed by three years of consultation with the independent dance community and the small-to-medium sector, the new biennial dance festival FRAME will be held in Melbourne over 1-31 March 2023.

Running at the same time as Sydney’s independent dance festival March Dance (enrolments for which close on Monday 28 November) the new festival is co-presented by a range of partners, including the City of Melbourne’s Arts House, Bunjil Place in the outer suburban City of Casey, Dancehouse, and The Substation.
