New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Outdoor dance performances in the NewActon Precinct
On Friday evening, get on down to the NewActon precinct to experience and celebrate International Dance Day with two outdoor dance performances around the precinct.

At 5:15pm, Kendall Lane will be the stage for Ocean Island...Mine! which is described as "a woman, a 500kg block of ice, a shovel, and the steady walk from point A to point B. Back and forth, she works the open-cut mines of the past into the future of climate change; excavating the solid white rock into invisibility".

At 5:30pm, walk to the Phillip Law Street carpark and experience the dance of Sprout (as seen in photo above), who are described as "a site specific, dance, installation and interactive performance work performed by Alison Plevey, Olivia Fyfe and Debora Di Centa that comments on the modern day pattern or convention to construct nature".
