New work by Australian Dance Theatre

Garry Stewart is celebrating his tenth year as the Artistic Director of Australia Dance Theatre.

Garry has spent the past ten years at Australian Dance Theatre developing a reputation as a choreographer who challenges expected representation of dance through his collaborations with leading artists in photography, robotics and video installations.
