|Title of work||
Cross-stitch is composed of two solos and a duet. The first solo, Movement for One Man, was made by Beth Shelton for Neil Adams in 1979, in Melbourne and the second, Movement for One Woman, for Felicity MacDonald in 1982 in New Zealand. Though the dancers had never met, the solos had links in conception and process. Both were inspired, in part, by the particular qualities of the dancers. Beth has choreographed for the Tasmanian Dance Company (Tasdance) a number of times. Neil has been a member since 1981. When Felicity joined the Company in 1985 the opportunity to rework and combine the solos was created. The result is Cross-stitch.
