Australian Dance Party – Symbiosis

An Enlighten Canberra performance
Australian National Botanic Gardens
5 to 14 March 2021

Symbiosis takes the audience on a guided walk through different environments in the Australian National Botanic Gardens, exploring our human connection with Nature, our part in the natural world and its delicately balanced ecosystems.

It aims to direct focus back onto the urgency of climate action and to remind us of our role in protecting the precious.
