PYT Fairfield, in association with Sydney WorldPride, presents
Pioneers: A preview season

PIONEERS brings young queer and CALD Western-Sydney artists together to explore dance, activism, and identity through the contemporary social, psychological, and physical relationships with public space. 

As the artists from PIONEERS claim their space and time, they will invite audiences to participate in their activism as the event culminates into a collective dance. The dance will invigorate and reinforce optimism, freedom and reclaim the beauty and urgency of young people’s survival in the 21st century.

With love and dedication to dance – second to none – The Pioneers are Australia’s bravest dance crew.
