2016 - 2018
Facilitated by Emma Fishwick & Kynan Hughes
In SITU is an annual season of original site-specific works from WA independent dance artists. Initiated by performance trio Unkempt Dance in 2014, In SITU has now become a unique opportunity for artists and producers to explore an exciting new model of presenting independent choreography in enticing and unexpected locations throughout Perth. All proceeds from In SITU go to the artists involved.
What began as a pop-up performance in Joe’s Barber in King Street in 2014, travelled to Fremantle Arts Centre in 2015 under the guidance of UnKempt Dance Theatre, In SITU took over the Courtyard of the State Theatre Centre of WA in 2016, St. Georges Cathedral in 2017 and the Old Girls School in 2018 courtesy of producing duo Emma Fishwick and Kynan Hughes. Every year is different and the In SITU platform strives to provide new and exciting locations for local artists to create in.
In SITU has been funded by the Western Australian Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts. In SITU has also been made possible by the support of STRUT Dance Organisation, TURA New Music, State Theatre Trust, Perth Fringe World, St. George's Dance and Theatre and City of Perth Winter Arts Festival.
