Curatorial Statement:

Frankston Arts Centre (FAC) is one of the largest outer metropolitan arts venues in Australia incorporating an 800 seat theatre, 5 exhibition spaces, function centre, 192 seat black box theatre,  creative arts hub and a unique digital art space. The centre is recognised for its commitment to presenting contemporary dance and strives to enhance public understanding and appreciation of the art form to build new audiences and provide further opportunities for dance makers.
