Title of work

Cross Currents

Synopsis

With the overarching theme of “intensity” for the 2012 Tasdance program, I chose the idea of Cross Currents for this education project, and what is pleasing is that my initial ideas are teased out in the choreographic explorations and interpreted in relation to what that might mean to these young people.

Dean and Amelia looked at what makes up these students’ sense of self and the relevance of image in a culture full of social pressures and expectations. It reflects the way different points of view and ideas create these disruptions or ‘cross currents’ to political thought and opinion.
