Now in its third year running, The Corner Dance Lab returns to the historical Federal village 30 minutes inland from Byron Bay from 15 – 23 January 2016. Co-facilitators Philip Channells (Dance Integrated Australia) and Gavin Webber (The Farm Company) bring together an exciting line up of dance practitioners, musicians and visual artists from the local area, interstate and abroad for a practice-led dance laboratory at Jasper Corner (Federal Hall).

This creative activity is led by two of Australia’s leading dance practitioners Philip Channells (Creative Director, Dance Integrated Australia) and Gavin Webber (Co-founder of The Farm). Together they have created a program, which includes SWEAT, PLAY & SHOW which focuses on skills development and Choreographic Practice and Development in dance.

The Main Event is the culmination of a 9-day dance workshop program based around the philosophy of utilising communication as a creative tool, which is embedded into a series of vignettes placed in and around the Federal village in site specific locations. The performance showcases some of the work of 35 performing artists including local musician, Dominic Rado (Hunter & Smoke) and Lismore-based multi-media artist and projectionist, Marion Conrow.
