The Lost Dance Project
Secret Location Alice Springs/Mparntwe
24 - 26 May 2018
The Lost Dance Project (TLDP) is an investigation and comment on the rise of a digital generation. It speaks to the effects of social media on interpersonal relationships and our ability to communicate, and the need to cultivate physical human interactions and connections despite both of these things.
TLDP will see the CBD of Alice Springs/Mparntwe activated with offerings of live dance activity and visual street art, enticing the unassuming passersby and art sleuths alike to lose themselves in an adventure and be found alongside their fellow townsfolk at a secret location. Here they will witness the premiere season of a new dance work brought to you by local dance makers Madeleine Krenek and Frankie Snowdon (The Perception Experiment, Alice Can Dance) and a team of celebrated national collaborators.
Project Direction/Choreography/Performance: Madeleine Krenek and Frankie Snowdon
Collaborating Choreographers/Performers: Benjamin Hancock and James Andrews
Sound design and arrangement: Darcy Davis, Alisdair Macindoe, James Andrews
Lighting and spatial design: Jennifer Hector
Visual art design and installation: Bart Michaels

With thanks and love to the team of TLDP version 1 - Sydney Smith, Matt Adey and Byron Perry - for allowing us to take a great idea and run with it all the way to the desert.
This project is proudly supported by funding partners the Australia Council for the Arts, The Regional Arts Fund, The NT Department of Education, The NT Office of Youth Affairs, Sadadeen Primary School and Rooster Concept Construction, and through partnering organisations Red Hot Arts Central Australia and Watch This Space ARI.

After a day of life admin I visited the tourist information to ask if climbing Anzac hill for sunset was worth it. The dude at the desk instead suggested I climb Mt Gillen a little way out of town.
The mountain is at the site of John Flynn’s memorial stone (the founder of the flying doctor service- gives medical care to rural Australia.)
It was an absolutely stunning place- my camera phone and camera work not doing justice on the desperate scenary that sprawls out in ever direction. •••
I was told it was a popular destination for locals and I was sure to bump into a lot of people. Although there were a handful climbing down as I arrived- I was completely alone at the summit. It was a special feeling.
I did however make a couple of friends on the way down.
Wouldn't say no to an extra throttle this early
