Stanza

"Culture is in me as basic as thought, shifting and changing with my life journey. In this work, five lines of cultural movement language bring their own beauty and rhythmic grace, a poetic impression in time and space."

In this project there are two broad frameworks to my exploration within movement based practice. One which conceptualizes the inner state of being in terms of energy flow and external forms, reflects a more traditional Eastern philosophical attitude, drawing on Western and postmodernist developments. The exploration, dynamic interplay and possible integration of these are the basis of this project.

The multicultural composition of the cast in Stanza brought many cultural stories, attitudes and dance traditions into contact.
