Title of work

Mountain Clear Morning

Synopsis

A solo created on David O'Neile. The dance was first performed at the Athanaeum Theatre in Melbourne and Neil himself danced as David had broken his foot before the season. The work was based on a bushwalk Neil and David undertook on Razorback Mountain which is part of Mt Strezlecki, Flinders Island. It was extremely rugged terrain and they found it difficult to scrub bash their way to the top. It was the effort, striving and desire to achieve which Neil was trying to convey.
