PIONEERS Art & About 2024 season

PIONEERS has been selected to officially premiere as part of the 2024 Art & About season.

Watch the team take-over Circular Quay with their origin story told through their exceptional dance moves.


PIONEERS brings young queer and culturally diverse 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 bring you a dance to reinvigorate 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.
