Summary

To celebrate half a century of innovation in dance performance, Fifty traces the very different trajectories ADT has taken under the successive artistic direction of Elizabeth Cameron Dalman, Jonathan Taylor, Lenny Westerdijk and Anthony Steel, Leigh Warren, Meryl Tankard, Bill Pengelly and Garry Stewart. Each of these directors has pushed the boundaries of dance performance and explored new modes of movement, theatrical expression and artistic collaboration, creating a repertoire of groundbreaking works that have challenged and delighted audiences both in Australia and internationally. In Fifty Maggie Tonkin explores ADT's fertile - and at times tumultuous - history through interviews and archival research, and showcases the company's most noted works through stunning images.
