Solos and duets from traditional to contemporary
Lineage presents a triple bill of short dance works featuring artists who have been trained in traditional dance forms and who are exploring contemporary works. Nritya Roopa is a collaborative work between two emerging Indian dancers, Aruna Gandhimathinathan and Shruti Ghosh, featuring the Indian classical dance forms of Bharatanatyam and Kathak. A beautiful performance weaving together invocation, abstract patterns and rhythmic dance.
A Dip For Narcissus, is a short work choreographed and performed by Indigenous artist Tammi Gissell. The solo is inspired by the Greek myth of Narcissus, who became so enamoured with his reflection that he drowned in a pool of water gazing at himself. Dark Dream, choreographed by Thomas E.S. Kelly and performed by Thomas E.S. Kelly and Carl Tolentino explores the realm of sleep, where nothing is in your command. Thomas E.S. Kelly is an emerging Indigenous performer, a recent graduate of NAISDA, the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association.
