Australasian Dance Collective is bringing its annual season of THREE to the stage, and Artistic Director Amy Hollingsworth cannot wait to share this latest collection of "exceptional" works with audiences.

ADC’s THREE provides a platform for creative risk-taking, with three choreographers invited to present something new to Brisbane audiences.

This year the program includes award-winning choreographer, Jenni Large, leading multidisciplinary artist, Alisdair Macindoe, and independent dance maker, Amber McCartney.

Jenni Large will be joined by longtime collaborator, Anna Whitaker, a composer with a palate for experimental, acousmatic works. Large's work is described as a fusion of the personal, political and transformational forces of embodiment.

Alisdair Macindoe will return with a new commission and composition. Macindoe’s work spans performance and technology and his recent works explore themes such as automated dance, artificial intelligence, waste, climate change, and identity in the age of narcissism.

Amber McCartney will present her highly acclaimed and provocative solo work, Tiny Infinite Deaths. Set to a pulsing, experimental soundtrack by Makeda Zucco, the work premiered at Melbourne’s RISING in 2023 to rave reviews. McCartney’s practice incorporates prosthetics, mask-making, film and practical special effects to create augmented bodies, unfamiliar to both performer and viewer.

The triple-bill will showcase the stunning versatility of the ADC dancers, with Associate Company Artist, Tyrel Dulvarie, returning for the season.

“The curated THREE program gives audiences three unique offerings and personifies ADC’s commitment to presenting new and invigorating dance works,”  Hollingsworth says.

“We all respond to art in different ways, and the gift of a varied program such as this, is that there really is something for everyone - from moments of awe and intrigue to introspection and joy.”

THREE will be presented at the Brisbane Powerhouse’s Powerhouse Theatre from 20 to 23 March.
