Because of You…Gosnells

Because of You… is a child-centred dance project created by award-winning choreographer Sandi Woo and produced by Annette Carmichael Projects.

This unique project is created with and performed by children aged 4-7 years old with a significant adult in their life. The performance is made through a series of fun and playful workshops where performers learn a series of games which they play during the show. This is the third season of Because of You… following performances in Broome (2013) and Denmark (2020).

Participants in the Broome and Denmark performances told us how much it strengthened the bonds between child and adult and how impressed the adults were by the creativity and leadership of the children.

This project is coming to Gosnells in response to the isolation felt by so many during the Covid19 pandemic.

Presented by Don Russell Performing Arts Centre, City of Gosnells
