Title of work

Piece for Elsie et al

Synopsis

This performance has been specially devised for the opening of the University's new theatre, an exciting new performance venue for Tasmania. The structure of the piece is complex, drawing on movement material and repertoire from existing programmes for primary and secondary schools. As such, the piece incorporates the work of all choreographers who have worked with the company including resident choreographers Neil Adams, Chris Babinskas, David McMicken and Jenny Kinder as well as guest choreographers Louise Burns, Helen Herbertson and Graerne Watson. The piece is abstract and will take on different meanings for different people as relationships emerge and dissolve. At times the piece is a pure movement study and conveys no meaning.
