Singapore artistic exchange

I am heading to Singapore in 2 weeks!!  Beginning an artistic exchange with Maya Dance Theatre and introducing some choreographic methodologies to their company and local dancers plus seeing lots of dance shows by local and Asian companies and indy artists.

I’ll also be co-presenting a performative paper “Australian diversity and Asian Body Culture: Singapore-Australia Collaboration” with Kavitha Krishnan, Artisitic Director of Maya Dance Theatre at World Dance Alliance Asia-Pacific Dance Bridge to springboard our new collaboration. Both these 2015 projects are supported through Arts NSW Artists Support.

Self Portrait in development

Self Portrait is a show that asks a lot of questions about identity ….. Do we need it? Does identity have an identity…? How does it shiff and shape us?

I am working with theatre-maker Anne-Louise Rentell as director on this new solo work in September and we’re developing the ‘script’ before any choreogrphy or music which is a big departure from the last decade of previous works, using rhythm and live music in relationship to dance.

Massive thanks to Ausdance DAIR and ReadyMade Studios and Merrigong Theatre Co. for their generous support with stuido space.
