Mature Artists Dance Experience (MADE) is based in Hobart, and is one of Australia’s leading companies in the field of dance for older artists. In December MADE will be performing an exciting new double bill at the Moonah Arts Centre. MADE regularly collaborates with nationally and internationally acclaimed choreographers and designers. This new, vibrant double bill is no exception.

One half of the bill is MADE TO LAST, created by one of the UK’s most iconic artists, ‘the grand dame of anarchic dance’, Liz Aggiss. Choreographer, film maker and larger-than-life performer, Liz Aggiss is the winner of multiple awards internationally, and celebrated by several European Universities with Honorary Doctorates. She is a fiery mature artist whose work over five decades has challenged conventional ideas of female sexuality and beauty. Liz has created a work that is particularly timely in light of the globally ageing population.

The other work, HandMADE is a new work by Tasmanian dance maker Emma Porteus. Emma’s work has reached far beyond Tasmania, embracing the globe from South Africa to Finland. In this new work Emma draws that global perspective in tight, with a work that focuses on the way we experience the world through the bodies we inhabit.

The development of this performance has been supported through a partnership with Moonah Arts Centre.
