We are developing our FIRST full-length work, set to debut at the Sydney Fringe Festival in September 2017, which focuses on life as a modern Australian woman, exploring the best and worst parts of being born a girl in our lucky country.

We are incorporating dance with film and projection to create a rich and at times surreal atmosphere to tell our tale.

We are a group of passionate 20-something-year-old dancers who met each other at uni.
In the past, we have created short works that look at social issues that are “off-limits” in general conversation such as domestic violence, human trafficking and exploitation, and gender equality, among others.

Supporting us means you will not only give young Australian artists the opportunity to create a work that shares the experiences of Australian women, told by Australian women but you will be contributing to social change too.

You will also be giving seven people the opportunity to express themselves through the art they love, dance.

We have calculated the funds needed to cover the bare minimum expenses such as public liability, lighting, and production costs.

We will be sourcing costumes from our own wardrobes and old dance costumes, to not only minimise our expenses but also our environmental footprint.

The majority of our creative and technical crew (photographer, stage manager, ushers, etc.) are family, friends or volunteers donating their time.

Most importantly, once we have covered expenses, all additional funds will be shared with the dancers. We want to pay them for the time and energy given to create this work.

Bonnie, Kate, Kristy, Anna, Sara, Kara and Steph thank you for your generous support.

Bonnie Curtis Projects is an independent dance company based in Sydney, Australia.

After working as a collaborative group on several projects, we decided to create a company and work together on a regular basis.

Our vision is to incorporate dance with film, installation and performance arts to explore darker elements of our human existence and topics that are thought of as taboo in our society. We want to push boundaries and encourage our audiences to question their views.

Our works explore the raw emotions, experiences and thoughts that have formed our modern society.

Our creations and collaborations have been featured at ImPulsTanz, Museum Moderner Kunst (Austria), Girona Film Festival (Spain), Quadstock Music Festival (US), CinéWomen|Womenartconnect (Europe), Asia International Youth Short Film Exhibition (China), Biennale of Sydney, Sydney World Film Festival, Platform Shorts and Sydney Fringe Festival (Australia).
