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

Seven Weeks of Miracles

I have recently returned from 7 weeks at Mirramu Creative Arts Centre on Lake George in regional NSW. During that time I performed in 8 (yes!) seperate productions, most with Mirramu Dance Company but also some independent work in Canberra.

In the coming week I will upload more photos of the projects I have been involved in. The photo in this post is of the site-specific performance ‘disAPPEARance’ by Mirramu Dance Company in collaboration with Dancecology from Taiwan and JS Wong from Malaysia. It has been incredibly rewarding to work so closely with those international artists and I am excited about our ASIA TOUR starting in June this year!
