Tracks is a recognised centre of excellence, producing exceptional performances built on an extended history of trusted community collaboration. Tracks is an innovator, developing an Australian dance idiom that values and utilises a diversity of dance practice while remaining fiercely local, producing dynamic, site-specific dance performances that celebrate an important part of Australian culture – the frontier of the Northern Territory.
Tracks Dance Company celebrates: People, their stories, truths and diverse heritage. Place, Darwin with the deserts of Central Australia to the south, and the tropics of South East Asia to the north. Spirit, the vitality of a living culture enriched by traditional and contemporary life.
Enter one of our spectacular outdoor theatres; fashioned from WWII ruins, the canopies of giant rain-trees, rooftop car parks, or a basketball court in a remote desert community. See dancers drawn from the unique cultural mix of people who call the Territory home; from head spinning breakers and funky contemporary movers, to showgirl grannies and ochre painted elders. Sometimes a performance may reflect one central focus such as youth, Indigenous, seniors, or diverse cultures, while at others times Tracks explores the way that diversity sits side by side in our world.
Tracks is a key arts organisation of the Australia Council for the Arts' and the Northern Territory Government through Arts NT.
