<strong>PIECES 2022</strong>


PIECES is an annual artist development program offering choreographers the opportunity to produce a new 20-minute performance commissioned by Lucy Guerin Inc and The Substation.

PIECES showcases exceptional contemporary artists operating outside of company structures whose work embodies risk, boldness and experimentation. It is a season that reminds us of the capacity contemporary dance has to unveil, defy and inspire.

The commissioning structure provides selected artists with resources to challenge their regular practice and dive into a singular choreographic exploration.

The eclectic program that emerges is an opportunity to gather and celebrate live performance as a vital experience. The choreographers creating work for the 2022 season of PIECES are Melanie Lane, Amber McCartney and Rachael Wisby.

Premiering December 14, PIECES 2022 is a co-production by Lucy Guerin Inc and The Substation. It is produced by Estelle Conley.

The duration of the performance is approximately 75 minutes without interval. The Substation galleries, bar and bookshop will open one hour prior to the performance. Latecomers will not be admitted.

PIECES will run 14-17 December at The Substation. There will be an Auslan interpreted artist talk following the performance on Friday 16 December 2022.
