A new beginning: multiple transformations

As we descend deeper into the unchartered depths of the 21st Century one thing is certain; humanity has a big question. What can we do about the environmental effects our current practices have on the natural world and consequently us?

Prime: Orderly is a dance performance and a distillation of two years research undertaken by Australia Council Dance Fellow, Dean Walsh. His choreographic research into marine environments – from scuba diving to interviewing some of Sydney’s most experienced marine environment experts -has produced a new choreographic scoring system, Prime: Orderly.

Come on this extraordinary journey with Dean at the creative interface between dance, environment and science.

There will be Q&A sessions after each performance, with guest facilitators from the arts, diving and science communities.

Choreographer: Dean Walsh
