Mature Artist Dance Experience
Graeme Murphy AO and Janet Vernon AM collaborate with Tasmania’s Mature Artist Dance Experience (MADE) to bring to the stage a dance theatre work like no other.
Spoken word, song, soundscape, installation, costume and machine are used to create an innovative theatrical experience that embroiders together a tale inspired by photographs from ensemble members in their “best dress”. The Frock is a patchwork of personal recollection and aspiration that expands on ideas of how Australians lived, have loved, why they dance and what makes their hearts sing.
