As part of AGWA's innovative cross-arts partnership with WA's newest contemporary dance company Co3, Gallery visitors can experience a creative response to their State Art Collection and Gallery architecture re-interpreted through contemporary dance. 

Over the course of four days every month, you can observe Co3 Artistic Director and choreographer, Raewyn Hill as she creates new work, Reason for Being, with Co3 dancers in the Gallery's spaces. 

In view of the public, Hill will unpack her creative practice, revealing the process of creating contemporary dance in the unusual live studio environment of AGWA.
