About AAF: Untrained

Four men on stage. Two are highly skilled, experienced dancers; two have no movement training at all.


Untrained is an irreverent and humorous theatrical experiment that gives both performer and audience a whole new experience of dance.


Two professional dancers and two ordinary guys are given the same instructions. The complex, refined movements that one man can do with ease, another can only approximate. How they execute them reveals an individual portrait of each man’s character and physicality, as well as an unavoidable comparison between them.


Captivating audiences from New York to Toowoomba, Untrained will have you on the edge of your seat as you are launched into an extraordinary and unpredictable display of backspins, turns, and head slides – and a fascinating insight into the stories our bodies tell about masculinity and humanity.


Leading Melbourne contemporary dance company Lucy Guerin Inc brings one its most popular works to Aotearoa for the very first time; while one of our most accomplished global dance stars, Arts Laureate Ross McCormack, returns to the stage to perform one of his career highlights in this Trans-Tasman coup.
