In the heart of Fyshwick lies a warehouse that once held money for the mint.
When Alison Plevey first heard about this location it was surrounded by mystery and she just knew it would be the perfect location for an Australian Dance Party performance.
But the vault - as it has been dubbed for the dance company's upcoming performance - is more than just a substitute for a theatre. It's the inspiration for everything from the choreography to the music and costumes for From the Vault.
Even the mysterious nature of the building has inspired the exact location to remain a secret until shortly before the performance.
"There is this mystery and secrecy around it almost like a high-security sort of feel," she says.
"When I heard about this space it was all like this secret business and then I was thinking is this what we lock away and keep safe? Money - is that our most precious, most secret commodity? And it just made me question what are our values.
"Sure money is important in our society, but I kept coming back to these real human enablers that allow us to really connect to ourselves and to other people."
Within the choreography, Plevey has focused on five core values which the Australian Dance Party believes encompass the values which are or should be held by society.
"It's also how we maybe need to look at that and reflect on how we're living out our values, whether we believe them and whether we're fully acting on them as well," she says.
"There are all these dimensions of the work which comes from the space because it's this box-like bunker and we sort of take the audience right in close to the performer with their own little volt of memories or values that they hold inside them."
It is not unheard of for Australian Dance Party to take their performances to relatively unusual settings, having already held performances at Mount Majura Solar Farm and in the Shine Dome moat.
The occurrence is called site-specific choreography and sees the performance as a direct result of the space it is performed in.
But by having the performances in such unique locations, Plevey says not only does it add an extra layer to the piece itself, it also creates a unique experience for the audience.
"There is a real connection with those people who are experiencing the same thing at the same time in a unique scenario and I think that's a really great social experience as well," she says.
"I feel like art and dance particularly has this ability to enable art and space to reflect on our own life."
- From the Vault is on September 20 and 21 at 7.30pm and on September 22 at 6pm in a secret warehouse in Fyshwick. Tickets are from $24 from Eventbrite.
