‘FORGE’ premiere May 2016

FORGE is a metaphor for the human soul that is beaten and shaped through life. Reckoning with self, creating new place, forging new form, torquing the vertical spine, disarming the meter, claiming bracelet replica cartier rite of passage toward self-sovereignty. Many years ago, I sat at the wall in the garden of the Alcazar in Seville and cried, no idea why. I recently learnt this wall was part of the Juderia, the ghetto of the Sephardi peoples sent away some 600 years before. They fled to Arabia and further to India to where I now know my ancestries lie. FORGE reveals fragments of memory, my life with flamenco, love of Lorca, the pentagram, seguriyas rhythm and Guernica. Outside the wall I build a new city.

Spoken and sung text: There is no safe life when freedom is lost. Antonio Enriquez Gomez, Spanish cartier bracelets Jewish dramatist, poet.(1600). Cielo Vivo (extracts) Federico Garcia Lorca. Puncha La Rosa Sephardi folk song.

DanceLife Australia Review ‘A Hot Topic’

Mother Tongue Review

Published on 17th Sep, 2014 | Article by: amandawoodbine

Mother Tongue Review

Last night I had the pleasure of going to see Theatre of Rhythm and Dance’s most recent production Mother Tongue.Mother Tongue is an innovative multimedia dance-music work and built within a framework that explores the diversity of culture and language – of physical cultural movement and sonic rhythmic languages. Cultures represented were Torres Straight Islands, India, Polynesia, Ghana and Java with flamenco. It also explored contemporary dance as well as body percussion – which provided some of my favourite parts of the piece. It focuses on the shared and separated spaces within this world and brings to light the similarities and differences of human beings – their cultures, arts forms, and ‘mother tongues’.

A special mention needs to go to Annalouise Paul, who provided the choreography, concept and direction. She has been working on Mother Tongue for seven years now and it shows in the shows finished product. It constantly made the audience question how we relate to other cultures, a topic that is quite hot within Australia as I write this review.

Annalouise Paul’s work was certainly helped by the brilliant performers. The cast was exquisite and included: Andrea Adidi, Geraldine Balcazar, Aletta Fauzi, Patrick ‘Lucky’ Lartey, Gregory Lorenzutti, Govind Pillai Original music by Tim Foley and Greg Sheehan Lighting: Toby Knyvett Costume: Tobhiyah Feller Art: Saranjit Birdi.

Each member performed with passion and commitment and moved their bodies in a way that exemplified the culture they were representing.The parts of the piece that I enjoyed the most is when the performers would use their bodies to assist the music; whether it be body percussion or their voices. This, in conjunction with smart lighting designs that interconnected the artists during the piece, kept bringing the audience back to the notion of everyone being connected even though sometimes we are separated by cultural and language barriers. Original music by Greg Sheehan and responsive light design by Toby Knyvett were apart of this process and truly helped to bring the piece together as a whole.

While you may not be able to see Mother Tongue before it closes, I seriously suggest that you remember “Theatre of Rhythm and Dance” and try and see any shows they have in the future – I know I will be.

Mother Tongue is playing at Bangarra Dance Theatre from 3rd September

‘Self Portrait’ solo residency

It’s been a big month working with Kristine Landon-Smith and Jane Harrison on ‘Self Portrait’ a new solo work at Blacktown Arts Centre. Hard work and discipline are fundamental, it has been fun and challenging working on new processes and in the passenger seat. Kristine comes with a wealth of knowledge on intracultural theatre making, something that is so enjoyable to listen to her speak about and Paschal Berry who has supported as outside eye, has a keen understanding on process and the importance of conversation as a beginning process and research.  Looking forward to more with all!

Back from India again 2013

Back from India a second time and it was an amazing chapter of new collaborations and creations, meeting with many great dancers and musicians across the country.

I was fortunate to be invited to perform flamenco at the wonderful Zorba The Buddha in New Delhi and for World Dance Day on May 1st at ICCR, Kolkata.  One of the highlights was teaching at Gati Studios New Delhi where I got to develop new ideas on cross cultural training techniques and explore current research on movement with traditional rhythms and primordial numbers. I was also introduced to various press opportunities through Carpe Diem India and E365 Media, thanks to them for this wonderful exposure. Here are some interviews and articles…. with more to come!

My production is connected with India at various levels. But when I look at Bengaluru – the discerning audience’s verdict is more important to me. As a performer to get critical acclaim in this city means more than just a performance”, says dancer Annalouise Paul.
