FORGE & BUSH BAILANDO

  • Learn The Repertoire Workshop
    Friday 6 May 2016 10AM – Parramatta Studios
  • 12.30pm Matinee performance and post show Q+A Lennox Theatre

Choreography: Pepa Molina and Annalouise Paul

Two of the leading exponents of contemporary flamenco dance in Australia share this exciting double bill of original solo performances accompanied by live musicians.

FORGE is a striking new dance-music collaboration between award-winning artist Annalouise Paul and Amanda Handel. Evoking a blacksmith’s iron furnace, FORGE draws upon contemporary dance and the percussive power of the piano to reinterpret the soulful flamenco form Seguiriyas, and its origins in Sephardi deep song – out of the fires of invention, life forges on….

Internationally acclaimed Pepa Molina explores the displacement of her Andalusian heritage and identity within the Australian landscape in BUSH BAILANDO. Inspired by the natural environment of her home in Western Sydney, Pepa reinterprets traditional flamenco choreography through the sounds and rhythms of the Australian bush, composed in an original score by Hector Gonzalez Sanchez.

This is Flamenco like you’ve never seen it before.

TIME OVER DISTANCE OVER TIME

  • Learn the Repertoire Workshop
    Friday 24 June 2016  – Parramatta Studios
  • 12.30pm Matinee performance and post show Q+A Lennox Theatre

Choreography: Liz Roche

TIME OVER DISTANCE OVER TIME sees a cast of six performers wrestle with the physical and emotional distance they encounter while living at opposite ends of the planet. Digital technology is the lifeline but ultimately a poor substitute for the full presence of a person. A person standing beside you, understanding you not just from what you say, but from the myriad of physical information that enhances our experience of each other.

Working with an exceptional creative team, the performers explore their constantly fragmenting and suspended physicality, while preserving their relationship to each other over distance and time.

“Liz Roche has been an integral part of Ireland’s dance community for many years. She is a restless artist continually pushing herself into new places. “ Ballet Tanz International

DADS

  • Learn the Repertoire Workshop
    Friday 4 November 2016 – Parramatta Studios
  • 12.30pm Matinee performance and post show Q+A Lennox Theatre

Choreography: Dance Makers Collective

For their latest production, Dance Makers Collective are seeking advice from their dads, on how to make dance. ‘Dad dancing’ is much derided, but ask a dancer’s father, “when is it ok to dance?” or “why bother dancing?” and the answers are not what you’d expect. Enter a world of secret solo dance practice, gender bending, philosophising and joyful experimentation. As contemporary dancers take their artform for a walk back through their family history, they investigate the cultural relevance of dance and its timeless ability to nurture collective experience.

With a fluid, collective structure DMC aims to support the development of new dance work by its members, from research stages right through to production, building vibrant and highly collaborative working relationships.  Its members are Matt Cornell, Anya Mckee, Sophia Ndaba, Katina Olsen, Marnie Palomares, Melanie Palomares, Carl Sciberras, Miranda Wheen and Rosslyn Wythes.
