In 2010, FORM Dance Projects (formerly Western Sydney Dance Action) formed a partnership with the International Dance Festival Birmingham, UK (IDFB) to discuss possible commissioning of their bespoke outdoor dance theatre concept (In) Visible Dancing -a unique collaboration between IDFB and Protein Dance Company, choreographed and conceived by Luca Silverstrini and IDFB Creative Producer David Massingham.
FORM Dance Projects is currently aiming to present (In)Visible Dancing in Parramatta in January 2012.
Luca Silverstrini – Choreographer- Protein Dance Company, UK
For Protein, creating and performing dance is crucially connected with everyday life. Artistic Director, Luca Silverstrini, takes everyday issues and subjects them to a deep, witty analysis through his own very idiosyncratic and distinctive dance theatre. Driving the approach is a desire to connect theatrical experience with the life stories of participants – amateur or professional – and audiences. The result is work of humour, pathos and invention which reflects the integrity and absurdity of its ingredients.
