The Embassy has been offered up to 40 free tickets for its staff and members of ABIE and the Australia Society to attend the Lucy Guerin dance company’s performance of its work Motion Picture in Bruges at 8pm Wednesday 1st February.
FYI the small Melbourne-based dance company creates and tours new dance works which explore everyday events and refine dance. Motion Picture is described as “a choreography which examines the tension between live performance and cinema. The dancers face the big screen behind the audience and use the film images as a source of inspiration for their movements.”
REGISTRATION CLOSES TODAY 12PM (Wednesday 18th Jan) Sunday 22 January 12:00-17:00 Join the Society and our ambassador to Belgium for a good Aussie BBQ with a selection of Australian wines. There are great raffle prizes to be won and activities for children at the venue. Please indicate if you would like the vegetarian/vegan option when you register.
