Thumb Kingdom Collage

Support Us

You are invited to join a dynamic network of people who value and support the work of Phillip Adams BalletLab, and the remarkable vision of artistic director Phillip Adams. Help us to achieve our goals by providing vital support to our 2013-14 program. Enable the creation and presentation of the most exciting, idiosyncratic live art and performance work in Australia to share with audiences who want to challenge and broaden their own perspectives. 

Our current priorities that need your support are:

Development of Thumb to enable a premiere season in 2014, a contemporary performance of size changing themes, from the gigantic to the miniature; inspired by 50s-60s films and side-tent hypnosis. Collaborating with leading visual artist Mikala Dwyer, 5 amazing dancers, Thumb will give audiences a whole new perception-shifting experience.

Kingdom will commence development in 2013. Kingdom responds to histories and experiences of local communities to create a performative picture of collective living and personal utopias defined by habitation/architecture, nature and sexuality. A wide-ranging development is planned from the studio (with 4 male choreographers) to the community (in partnership with the Victorian AIDS Council) towards a series of outcomes in 2014 and 2015 in Melbourne and internationally.

We aim to shift perceptions of what dance and art making can be. 

Through these projects, we support interns, students, emerging dancers and artists and stimulate a far wider circle of thinking and activity outside of the studio walls - effectively a platform for new thought, perspective and experiences.

Right now, we need your support at the critical stages of these two new projects. We need people that believe in our vision and ability to deliver some of the most incredible performance and live art experiences to become involved at this time, this stage and play a vital role. 

All donations of $2.00 or more are fully tax-deductible and gratefully accepted at all levels. Donations over $250 are supported through our Patron program, with acknowledgement on BalletLab's website and in our Annual Report at your discretion. There are opportunities for a closer involvement with the company throughout the year.
