I’m excited to say the Dance Diaries project was launched on June 22nd with a Meet n Greet morning tea, inviting the senior folks of Narrandera to join myself, video artist Martin Fox and composer Vic McEwan. We had a cup of tea and discussed the ideas for the project and then had a mini movement workshop so everybody could experience a taste of what will come.
The Dance Diaries project is an initiative to create a short dance film with the senior folks about two important things in life: home and dancing. Through a series of workhsops I will present some movement and choreographic ideas in which to make a dance for our film. In the workshops, we will also discuss ideas around home. What is the value of having a home and the different thoughts and feelings of what home is to each of us over an arc of a lifetime.
The project will run in three stages throughout 2012; in June, August and September. A screening of the film will be shown in November 2012.
