Precipice 2022…

Dates will be announced in early 2022.  Precipice 2020 & 2021 were cancelled because of the pandemic and we are hopeful that the event can resume in 2022 in late Winter or early Spring.  I have left some details from previous years for your information but everything is subject to change when we have confirmation of the event going ahead.

It will be at:

Ainslie Ave.
Braddon in CANBERRA
(at QL2 Centre for Youth Dance but please do not contact QL2 about Precipice)

Precipice is a 3 day event that brings together experienced improvisers with a diverse range of practices and styles from all around Australia.   It has been running for over twenty years in Canberra and provides a wonderful opportunity to work with peers and perform for each other over the course of three days – to watch, discuss, collaborate, investigate, and practise improvising.

There will be a workshop each morning, “in-house” performance events in the afternoon, and evening performances open to the public. An improvising lighting operator will be in the bio box making us look great.  This is a great opportunity to show your improvising in a fully equipped performance space and under theatre lights.

Precipice was part of the Australian Choreographic Centre’s annual programme before Peter Trotman and Tony Osborne took responsibility for the event.  2022 will be the 27th anniversary of the opening of the Choreographic Centre which under the directorship of Mark Gordon brought Trotman & Morrish to Canberra to perform as part of the centre’s launch. An improvisation event called Precipice was created and has filled the theatre at Gorman House for 3 days at this time every year until 2020!

In the event of border closures or lockdowns in ACT, NSW, VIC, QLD or TAS prior to the start of the event, all payments will be returned in full.

All participants must agree to comply with any current ACT restrictions such as checking-in on the CBR app
