POTENTIAL in the studio at Strange Attractor Choreographic Lab

In August I took part in a one-week ‘lab’ for choreographers in Canberra with choreographer Nat Cursio in the role of provocateur. It was extraordinary!
I used the time to work on POTENTIAL in a focused away-from-home setting and I am super pleased with the results. Feeling full of refined ideas, new ideas, and new connections before heading into to the studio with the dancers for a final three weeks of creative work leading up to the premiere season at Melbourne Fringe Festival. Exciting!!!

Mirror Image on tour in Taiwan and Malaysia

me and fufu

Mirror Image post-show talk

Mirror Image is a joined production by Mirramu Dance Company (Australia), Dancecology (Taiwan) and DPAC Dance Company (Malaysia). In July the collaborators from all 3 companies came together for 2 weeks in Taiwan, and 1 in Malaysia. In Taiwan we performed at the Experimental Theatre in the National Theatre complex, and in Malasiaat Damansara Performing Arts Centre. 

In both countries, but especially in Taiwan, we received such a heartwarming response to the work. Audience members very willingly and openly shared how they connected both to the themes of the work and the dance. In one post-show forum a woman even started to sing a song of gratitude!

The Taipei program note features a beautiful quote by Elizabeth Cameron Dalman of Mirramu Dance Company:

When we dance, we let the light inside our body flow out.
When we dance with nature, we let the light flow into our body.
Capture the very moment when the two lights become one – the most powerful reflection. Mirror Image nature castMirror Image in the news
