THREE60 – The Evolution of Hip Hop (Excerpts) 

1pm: Marischal Square 

The Evolution of Hip Hop is a story telling journey of hip hop culture and its influences in the world. This piece follows a journey of dancers who showcase the culture through movements   and sound by defining each style of dance and its way of moving. The journey will start from the beginning of time to where hip hop is now and where it will be tomorrow.   

Alice Mary Cooper - Waves  

2pm: The Lemon Tree 

Waves is the tale of Elizabeth Moncello and how, growing up on Gabo Island (Australia) in the 1930s, by emulating fish, penguins and dolphins to learn how to swim, she came to be the unofficial inventor of the butterfly stroke. Combining storytelling, movement and splashes of humour, Waves is about having the courage, desire, and determination to swim against the tide of expectation. An extraordinary tale of a life fully lived.

Bridie Gane – Reception 

Two receptionists will little to do. The phone has stopped ringing since the start of the pandemic so, together they create their own entertainment to pass the time whilst also slowly driving each other to madness. Looking at the bizarreness that was office life, back when that was a thing.
