'Moving Landscapes' has been described by audiences as 'spine-tingling', 'powerful', 'emotional' and 'inspiring'. Proceeds from the performance will help raise money to save critically endangered and
vulnerable species such as the Leadbeater's Possum and the Greater Glider.
Moving Landscapes is an immersive multimedia dance performance created and presented by Valley Dance Collective. Through music, movement and video projections, the audience
is transported into the native forests of the Yarra Valley on a journey of connection, love and loss, to a gentle resolution and call to action. Moving Landscapes is a meditation on the relationship between humans and nature.
