FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres unveil 'sixbythree', a festival of six dance works by three choreographers over three events on the 5th & 6th July 2024. This innovative lineup invites audience participation, from immersive experiences in a recreated old Western setting to intimate one-on-one 'conversations' between dancers and audience members.

First of the three is Cowboy, a humorous, solo contemporary-dance work with an original sound score composed by Ben Ely that transports us to the set of a Western film. The free-roaming audience explores intimate settings and vast, open landscapes in choreographer Michael Smith’s cowboy fantasy world.

“From surfing trains and taming horses to wandering the desert, Cowboy holds a deeper inquiry into the existence of a shared humanity beyond fantasy. By committing entirely to the iconography of a cowboy, I seek to expose desires and vulnerabilities that exist in our pursuit to form identity.” – Michael Smith

Quartette, a mixed dance bill of four works, is a collaboration between award-winning choreographer/director Lewis Major and his mentor, “Britain’s leading modern dance creator” (The Daily Express), the legendary Russell Maliphant OBE.

The unique repertoire pieces investigate poetic possibilities, universal rhythms, and cycles performed by Major’s dancers. This is a captivating evening of connection between internal and external worlds and non-duality, set in a lightscape compared to Gustav Klimt’s paintings (Maggie Tonkin, Dance Australia).

Rounding out the festival is Lien, an exceptional one-on-one performance that embodies the beauty of human connection and the power of shared moments. In a unique and intimate exchange, one audience member and one dancer come together on an empty stage for a spontaneous 10-minute performance of “grace, beauty and emotional depth” – Rod Lewis, Glam Adelaide, ***** 5 Stars.
