Reverence \\ In Development
Kyle Page is facilitating a long-term community engagement program with the Urab dancers and community on Poruma Island in the Torres Strait.

Twilight \\ Premiere October 2015
Twilight will take you from dusk to dark on a dance and music journey through the winding pathways of Jezzine Barracks to celebrate its special magic at the twilight hour. A multi-site performance featuring over 150 performers from the Townsville community in ten short performance episodes across ten sites, Twilight has a surprise for you at every twist and turn of the ‘twilight’ walk we have mapped out for you.
