IN.CONVERSATION enables us to stay active in the dance discourse. In 2023 we invite a curator to host our annual offering of facilitated conversations for the sector. These activities allow us to invite the wider sector and our audience into our performance home to discover, discuss and debate themes currently driving and disrupting our dance community.  


If you are interested in attending, please select the following dates when booking your tickets. IN.CONVERSATION panel discussions will commence immediately following the performances listed below and are approximately 30-45min in duration. Topics will be announced closer to each season.
