Orbost Studio for Dance Research

24 Gordon St. Orbost 3888 Victoria, Australia 

This studio sits on the unceded land of the Gunnai-Kurnai, Bidewel & Manero-Ngarigo
We acknowledge that their land was brutally appropriated, and their lives and culture violated.

Art cannot change the past
, but offers a means to reflect in the present.
Artists from around the world are hosted in collaboratively curated residencies.
