15 and 16 March, 7:30 pm
The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre

Watch the origin story of Australia’s bravest dance crew in a dance-theatre work, PIONEERS.   

Following a pumping premiere at City of Sydney’s Art & About, PYT Fairfield’s PIONEERS heads back to western Sydney for its next season.

PIONEERS brings young queer and culturally diverse western Sydney artists together to explore dance, activism, and identity through the contemporary social, psychological, and physical relationships with public space. 

This work reinvigorates and reinforces optimism and freedom, reclaiming the beauty and urgency of young people’s survival in the 21st century. 

With love and dedication to dance, The Pioneers are Australia’s bravest dance crew.

Created and performed by Eliam Royalness, Neda Taha, Rennard Velasco and Roseleen Velasco, with music by Jamaica Moana. 

Please be advised this performance includes course language, brief discussion of adult themes and high volume sound.

This event is wheelchair accessible. For further info visit here.
