Dance Bites is a curated, signature program of contemporary dance works presented by FORM Dance projects from some of Australia’s most innovative and exciting independent choreographers and performers. This program is a unique opportunity for dance students to learn the repertoire from each of the Dance Bites performances in a workshop led by the presenting company. Please note this program is open to school groups only and you will need to submit a schools booking form to secure your places in these workshops.
Urban Kali – Masterclass
In Urban Kali, Rakini Devi subverts contemporary cultural stereotypes of female identity, transforming the Goddess Kali’s iconography to create a new, mythic, contemporary female identity. Devi ‘s use of Kali iconography is also a protest against female ‘shame’ prevalent in modern Indian society that sanctions atrocities as “punishment”. This new multi-disciplinary dance installation sees Devi collaborating with filmmaker Samuel James and sound artist, Karl Ford.
Dates & Times:
Friday 16 September – 11am Workshop, 12.30 matinee
Common Anomalies – LEARN THE REP + SEE THE SHOW
Common Anomalies is a triple bill of solo dances by young artists, vastly different in style, exploring their cultural identities. Solos interconnect breakdance, contemporary techniques, vogue, modern dance and folklore in dynamic and challenging vignettes. These works are cross-cultural, personal endeavours that capture a unique snapshot of a world of diverse and interconnected people, multiethnic and globalised.
Dates & Times:
Friday 3 November – 10am Workshop, 12.30 matinee

PUBLIC SCHOOLS – DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION (DoE) PAYMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The DoE takes 30 days from an invoice being submitted to payment being received by Riverside, therefore we MUST have full payment OR proof that the purchase order has been submitted to the DoE no later than four weeks prior to the performance date.
This is a new system for many public schools so we strongly recommend receiving monies and permission slips at least 7 weeks before the payment is due. This will allow any final changes in numbers (subject to availability). We cannot reduce numbers after payment has been received.
ALL OTHER SCHOOLS (INCLUDING INDEPENDENT AND CATHOLIC)
Confirmation of final numbers and final balance is required four weeks prior to the performance date. A reduction of numbers is not permitted after this date.
An increase of numbers is possible after the final payment day but is subject to availability.
Please note, all school bookings made within 4 school weeks of a performance date must be paid in full within 1 week of confirmation and are final. There are no refunds or changes to numbers or dates on these bookings.
5. FINAL INFORMATION SENT TO SCHOOLS
Prior to your visit, we will send you detailed information via email to ensure you have a hassle-free excursion. This will include updating you on any possible changes to running times or more detailed information as it emerges from the rehearsal process.
