PASSING IT ON
LUCKY LARTEY/RYUICHI FUJIMURA
Two solos embodying movement shifts influenced by voices from the past to the present, looking back and forward.


HOW I PRACTICE MY RELIGION

RYUICHI FUJIMURA (Australia/Japan)

Ryuichi Fujimura, a Sydney-based dance artist originally from Japan traces back his personal dance history and unpacks what is archived in his dancing body. Evolving from his love for dance, this work is dedicated to his first three dance teachers: Margaret Lasica, Caroline English and Anastasi Siotas.

“Ryuichi has the ability to make even the most decorative sequence seem essential” Vicki Van Hout

“a droll, dance piece which involved spoken word and it was really funny- that’s a rare thing in dance” William Yang

FULL CIRCLE

LUCKY LARTEY (Australia/Ghana)

Sydney-based dancer and choreographer, Lucky Lartey, draws upon his knowledge of traditional rhythms and dance as well as his understanding of contemporary movement practices to explore the longstanding relationship between hip hop culture and West African storytelling traditions. In this new solo, Lucky takes us on a personal journey revealing how hip hop has travelled full circle to Africa.

I want to create a work that highlights the tradition of storytelling in West Africa and how it was used to pass on and share knowledge. How this tradition was then adopted by hip hop culture as a tool for survival and a way of giving a voice to marginalised young people”. Lucky Lartey (2018)

TRAILER

In an astonishing exposition of choreographic fomentation, nine African choreographers tell stories of an emergent art form and their diverse and deeply contemporary expressions of self. Stunning choreography and riveting critiques challenge stale stereotypes of “traditional Africa” to unveil soul-shaking responses to the beauty and tragedy of 21st century Africa.
