Here is a collection of performance work, both solo and collaboration that I have explored as a Dancer.
Circling the Brink: Convergence Two
When: Sunday April 17th 11am and 2pm Performances
Circling the Brink - Convergence Two is a walking tour of movement, music and installation performances set in the beautiful landscape of Telopea Gardens.
From spending time moving within the soft pine nest of the Casurina Grove womb – I was inspired to relate with the five She-Oaks as pillars of ancestral wisdom and story – connecting the Red Thread of the Maternal line. The choreography for this work was inspired through intuitive movement response and mirroring of the She-Oaks shapes and textures and further by the emotions that arise within me in their presence: a somatic archeology of lived and living experience.
