Australian Dance Week: TRIGGER

About This Project

Presented by Ausdance WA, Act-Belong Commit and supported by The City of Perth, TRIGGER offers a free public dance event at the Perth Cultural Centre to wrap up Australian Dance Week events for 2018.

Essentially an outdoor dance-karaoke jam, TRIGGER let’s you nominate the playlist and uses interactive software to project your grooving body live onto the LED screen in a variety of animated forms. Featuring live flash-mob performances from Perth’s urban dance community, we encourage trained and untrained bodies to get up and dance to your favourite tunes under the stars. In 2018, we also invite all those who have attended a free class during Dance Week Open Classes to join in, try out some new moves and celebrate the final event of Australian Dance Week.

5 pm – 9 pm Saturday 5 May at James Street Amphitheatre, Perth Cultural Centre


What is your TRIGGER song? We want YOU to nominate your favourite dance tracks for this event – all nominated TRIGGER songs will feature on the playlist on the evening, to ensure you get your fix of soul-shifting beats. Simply post on social media using the hash tag: #triggersong

In the lead up and throughout Australian Dance Week, get snap-happy by creating your own dance clips on Instagram and use the #dancegrabs hash tag to have them included in our online film reel! Maybe it’s a rehearsal, maybe your fave song just came on, maybe you just can’t help yourself! Grab your mates and have a #dancegrabs boogie!!
