Founded by Paul Malek and Chris Curran in 2010, is a dance industry night designed to provide a supportive platform for new and established choreographers to experiment and showcase their newest and freshest points of view. A night where dancers of all genres can come together to celebrate our industry in all its creativity.
UNDRGRND has been a creative platform for so many of Melbourne's now successful choreographers and crews! It has provided a stage and a audience for creatives to put their choreographic brain's to practice and present their work in a supportive environment. It is such a valuable night that so many people hold in such high regard.
Beginning it's journey at Revolt Artspace in Kensington where it held 8 successful events. It was quarterly event which kept Melbourne dancing all year round! UNDRGRND reinvented itself in 2014 by moving into Melbourne’s CBD at the HIFI bar as well as taking this much loved evening up the west coast to Sydney and Brisbane. With a total of 11 remounts of UNDRGRND it is hard to deny that the success of UNDRGRND was paramount! And led Paul and Chris into their incredible business venture, now known all over Australia as Transit Dance.
UNDRGRND has taken a hiatus while Transit Dance has blossomed into a leading dance education facility in Melbourne. Now, in 2017, UNDRGRND has a new life. With Jayden Hicks moving into the position on producer, UNDRGRND has got a brand new energy and is ready to make the dance scene feel united once again!
