Dancenorth Australia presents Heart Is a Wasteland at Malthouse Workshop.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Major Festivals Initiative, managed by the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, in association with the Confederation of Australian International Arts Festivals Inc., Brisbane Festival, RISING, Ten Days on the Island and Stanford Live.
