‘Dancing in Fetters: the culture of convict dance’
August 25 - November 18 | 10:00am - 4:00pm| Free
Dance was an integral part of everyday life and one of the most popular forms of recreation in the early colony. Convicts danced to escape the drudgery and harshness of their existence. Some danced to the music of their jangling chains.
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council in partnership with dance historian Heather Clarke.
Museum open Tuesday – Sunday, 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
