Welcome to the inaugural Adelaide Dance Festival. Established by Adelaide’s own Australian Dance Theatre (ADT), the Adelaide Dance Festival includes a program of world-class performances, workshops, installations, discussions and masterclasses, inviting audiences to be moved, challenged and inspired.
The Adelaide Dance Festival is the first Adelaide festival dedicated solely to dance, sitting alongside the other festivals in Adelaide which are dedicated to the visual arts, cabaret and film. With a vision to be a national and international leader in dance and to push the boundaries of the art form through ambitious collaborations and interconnections, the Adelaide Dance Festival will create, support and promote new opportunities for dance in South Australia.
It is envisaged that the 2018 Adelaide Dance Festival will be the first step in the development of a major international dance festival. It will provide an unprecedented platform for showcasing South Australian-produced dance alongside national and international work of the highest calibre.
We invite you to join us on this epic journey of choreographic possibilities to be infinitely enriched.
