Imagine your life unsaved, unhappened. How do we go on when we begin to lose touch with the moments that have shaped our lives? How do we define ourselves when the memories we build together start to crumble?

Award-winning company Anything Is Valid Dance Theatre returns to the MoveMe Festival in 2018 with Dust on the Shortbread. Performed inside a suburban house for an intimate audience of just 15, Dust on the Shortbread offers a window into how Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease impacts our sense of identity and intimate relationships. 

You are invited to experience two of Australia’s most celebrated performers, together for the first time - Dr Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM, founder of Australian Dance Theatre and beloved WA actor George Shevtsov. From the creative team that brought you Life in Miniature, this captivating new work takes you into the heart of the home to grapple with what may be a future reality for many of us.

Tender, funny and poignant, this intimate dance theatre performance peers behind a facade presented to friends and family even as the things we hold on to begin to slip through our fingers.


Limited capacity of 15 per show. This site-specific performance does not have assigned seating. As this performance is in a house, there is no level access. If you have particular mobility requirements, please contact us before booking.

Secret Location in North Perth - further information will be provided at the time of booking.

Join us at the State Theatre Centre for a Free Q&A with Dr Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM, founder of Australian Dance Theatre, for an intimate conversation with this living legend of dance, Saturday September 15 at 2:30pm.
