UN­KEMPT Dance are not per­form­ing to their usual au­di­ence this month, but they will be closer to them.

WA Academy of Per­form­ing Arts grad­u­ates Jes­sica Lewis, of Red­cliffe, Carly Armstrong and Amy Wise­man are pre­sent­ing two 45-minute dance in­stal­la­tions in the win­dow of the Li­brary Night­club from 10pm to mid­night ev­ery Satur­day night through­out July.

“They’re not our usual au­di­ence… nor­mally we per­form in front of an arts au­di­ence with an ex­pec­ta­tion, but these guys are new for us,” Lewis said.

Armstrong said they had di­rect in­ter­ac­tion with the peo­ple on the street.

“That’s what’s fun about it,” she said.

Un­kempt Dance per­formed at Fringe World Fes­ti­val in 2012 and won the City of Perth Dance Award in the Fringe World 2014 Awards for their show Paper­land.

“There’s so much energy at Fringe World and it’s good that venues are try­ing to bring that to North­bridge through­out the year,” Wise­man said.

Li­brary Night­club spokesman Hugh Brown said the en­ter­tain­ment was for peo­ple walk­ing past and lin­ing up for the night­club.

“The first week­end, peo­ple were get­ting in­volved, it’s very in­ter­ac­tive,” he said.

He said the en­ter­tain­ment was rem­i­nis­cent of the per­for­mance art seen in cities all around the world.

“We’ve all done a lot of travel and liked this con­cept.”­mu­ni­ d440278
