Adelaide Embedded

Back

In 2014 Australian Dance Theatre introduced the new Adelaide Embedded program. Australian Dance Theatre Artistic Director, Garry Stewart conceived the Adelaide Embedded project to bring the world renowned company and its dancers out of the studio and theatres and into the community to connect with South Australians on “the street.” Featuring unexpected events held around Adelaide, Adelaide Embedded has been designed for South Australians as a way to make contemporary dance more accessible. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015, this initiative celebrates ADT as a proud South Australian company.

PAST EVENTS

ADT was proud to present Ice Cube for The Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC)’s 25th Anniversary President’s Dinner in June.

MASCC is an international multidisciplinary organization dedicated to research and education in all aspects of supportive care for people with cancer regardless of the stage of their disease.

Supportive care is essential in advancing cancer treatment and in enhancing the lives of those coping with cancer. MASCC/ISOO is where the world’s leading experts will come together to examine and discuss symptoms and complications of cancer treatment, methods to minimize cancer induced side-effects, and common psychosocial challenges. In a few short years, MASCC/ISOO annual meetings have developed a reputation for providing the most current data and innovative techniques in this critical field of research and knowledge.

ADT IN THE SQUARE

In 2015 ADT presented ADT in the Square. Transporting the ADT studios to Victoria Square to provide the public with an insight into a day in the life of one of Australia’s most exciting dance companies. Using their portable stage this free event provided an opportunity for the public to observe the company in rehearsal, meet the dancers, and understand what it takes to be a dancer with ADT.

ICE CUBE

In September 2015 Adelaide saw the return of  Ice Cube in Victoria Square presented in association with the Adelaide City Council.

Ice Cube is a different take on the ‘pop up’ performance. As a portable performance space it gives audiences a distinctive and surprising experience of dance art in a variety of Adelaide hot spots. It can be placed in any environment, particularly on the street, gallery spaces or shop windows. Which means it can happen anywhere, anytime!

Ice Cube premiered in 2014 in Rundle Mall to the delight of passing shoppers.

Ice Cube invites the audience to experience a 360-degree view of live dance as the ADT ensemble perform within a large perspex cube. Fusing performance with installation, this unique concept allows for interaction with contemporary dance that is ordinarily unexpected in a public space.
