Dance Leads to Chaos is the exploration of what it means and could mean to have dance restricted, limited, or taken away from our lives.
This creative development will engage the community in free and open-to-the-public workshops exploring connecting themes of isolation, restriction, expression and identity. The work gathers inspiration from the COVID-19 dance restrictions of movement in public spaces, venues and entertainment areas.
Reflecting on the good, the bad and all of the boogie in between. The Bring A Plate team will then gather for a week of intensive creative development to tease-out, tie-in and learn from all the stories and experiences received.
Bring A Plate (BAP) Inclusive Dance Company are a not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to changing the perception of who can dance, where to dance and how to dance in Australia.
Since 2017 they have been running weekly community dance classes in South East Queensland and regularly perform and run workshops at events and festivals. Equipped with an incredible team of multi-skilled facilitators with backgrounds in dance, music, theatre, community development, social work, youth work, exercise physiology, sustainability education and creative therapy – you never quite know what you will get out of a BAP class or a performance.
But, do you need to bring an actual plate? No! The term ‘bring a plate’ is Australian slang that means to bring some food along to a gathering to share with everyone. This is what we are all about! Everyone brings something different to the dance-floor and everyone has something to share!
