FORM Dance Pojects & Riverside Theatres present
FORM believes in the importance for artists to access studio space in order to play with ideas, collaborate, develop work and rehearse. FORM welcomes artists on a need basis for up to two-week residencies in its Parramatta-based studio pending on availability and relevance to FORM’s program.
Priority is given to artists developing work towards presentation in Dance Bites seasons.

Between 13-22 February, Australian dancer Alexandra Knox spent time in FORM’s studio, exploring possible collaborations with other artists.
“Recently I have had the rare pleasure of working with my mother Jennifer Barry (who worked with American choreographer Eleo Pomare and became one of the signature dancers of Australian Dance Theatre and Sydney Dance Company). I just recently completed a production entitled ‘Dancers with Dirty Feet’ which explores original repertoire of Eleo Pomare and Australian Dance Theatre, supported by the Australian Dance Theatre foundation, the Lincoln Centre Institute and the Eleo Pomare foundation (New York City). Since this time I have reflected on my own voice creatively and what it means to me personally.” Alexandra Knox
ABOUT THE ARTIST

ANTON AND BRIANNA KELL
Following Supermodern Dance of Distraction presented by FORM in 2012, Anton is back in the studio for the seed development of a new work with Brianna Kell and composer Jai Pyne. NARCI-FIXION theatrically explores modern human narcissist tendencies prevalent in today’s, me, self-obsessed, tap and scan superficial society and is a mix of the serious and the super obtuse. The duet will delve into the psychology of ego and super ego and is a deep physical dance exhibition that investigates riotous movement, physical characters and humorous theatricality.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Anton is a Sydney based arts professional who has navigated dance for 22 years. He has successfully worked in the industry as a performer, choreographer, producer, project director, movement director, rehearsal director and dance teacher. Also based in Sydney, Brianna has performed and worked with companies The Farm in collaboration with Co3, TASDANCE, Limosani Projekts, DirtyFeet, and Murmuration. Anton 45 and Brianna 29 first met in 2012 at TASDANCE. From that point both knew they had an exceptionally strong mutual artistic connection that has grown from strength to strength. Over 2018 Brianna and Anton spent time in the Bangarra and Brand X studios pursing, pushing and exploring ideas for a new collaboration.
