Starting Monday, I will work with the ADT ensemble on a further development of my work “Nought”.
Nought was originally created for the 2010 3rd year Adelaide College of the Arts Bachelor of Dance Performance students. Over the next year I will spend short creative development periods with the ADT company, edging the work toward presentation as a full-length work as part of ADT’s new-look 2012 Ignition Season. For this coming 2-week development I will be working with 4 members of the company; Kialea-Nadine Williams, Kyle Page, Jessica Hesketh and Tara Soh.
Stay tuned for further updates on this very exciting endeavour.
In other news, on friday I finished a 3-week creative development of a solo work, co-created by Tina Venditto and Myself. It is a project funded by the Helpmann Academy due for showing at the 2011 Ausdance SA October Choreolab Season at the Main Theatre, Adelaide College of the Arts, October 13-15. Titled “Colour of Night” it is an assessment of Nina Simone’s version of “Sea Lion Woman”. The song became a point of deviation, where a narrative was created set in the 1920′s images by Brassai, about a prostitute, turned murder mystery. Tina is a 2010 Graduate of ACArts and appeared in the original version of “Nought”.
