Get your groove on ten minutes at a time at a short burst dance party in Melbourne's west. Part of the Due West Immersive Arts Festival, the Maddern Square Block Party will take over the open space just around the corner from Footscray Station, and will combine live art, music, food, drink and dance.
The centrepiece of the free event will be 10 Minute Dance Parties, delivered by dance-based artist Joseph O'Farrell. Participants will step inside an enormous shipping container, at which point the music will start pumping.
Maddern Square will also play host to The Art of Fighting, a community art project that combines paint, canvas and a set of boxing gloves. There'll also be food trucks on-site, plus a bar by the team from Two Birds Brewing. It all goes down from 6pm to 9pm this Friday and Saturday night.
