DANCERS and musicians will next month perform under the emerging stars in the Arts at Twilight concert at The Briars property, Mt Martha.

The show (with food trucks) involves artists from Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula, including dancers from Spark Youth Dance Company, Tim Podesta’s Projection Dance Company, freelance dancers Dominique Cowden and Jacinta Martorella as well as The Briar String Quartet, Luke Severn and Elyane Laussade – a cello and piano duo and a peninsula-based clarinet quartet.

Spark Productions director Alex Dellaportas said The Briars property “provides the perfect setting for live arts entertainment to meet the beauty of the country”.

Dellaportas said there is a lack of events on the peninsula where audiences can watch “a collaborative arts variety show”.

“I wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to experience arts and culture from some of Melbourne’s most awarded dance companies and performing artists,” she said.

“Arts at Twilight and will be a fantastic way for peninsula people to experience world-class ballet, contemporary dance and classical music with their families and friends in the most beautiful setting.”

Attendees can take along a picnic, rugs, pillows and blankets. Food trucks will serve cheeses from Boatshed Cheese, Dromana and Jetty Rd Brewery.

Tickets for the 7pm-10pm Friday 1February Arts at Twilight are $20 adult and $15 for children under 16, students and concession.
