FORM Dance Projects and Riverside present Dance Bites 2019
LEARN THE REPERTOIRE, SEE THE SHOW

Dance Bites is FORM Dance Projects’ curated signature program of contemporary dance works produced by some of Australia’s most innovative and exciting independent choreographers and companies. Learn the Repertoire, See the Show offers dance students a unique opportunity to learn each of the Dance Bites works in a workshop led by the artists. In 2019, Dance Bites will include one Australian and two international premieres. To further enhance their experience, following the workshop, the students experience the matinee performance of the show, which includes a post-show Q&A opportunity with the artistic team.


International Premiere
FULL CIRCLE

I want to create a work that highlights the tradition of storytelling in West Africa and how it was used to pass on and share knowledge. How this tradition was then adopted by hip hop culture as a tool for survival and a way of giving a voice to marginalised young people.” – Lucky Lartey

Sydney-based dancer and choreographer, Lucky Lartey, draws upon his knowledge of traditional rhythms and dance as well as his understanding of contemporary movement practices to explore the longstanding relationship between hip hop culture and West African storytelling traditions. In this new solo work, Lucky will take you and your students on a personal journey revealing how hip hop has travelled full circle to Africa.

Dates & Times
Friday 7 June
Schools Workshop at 10am – This will be held on Riverside’s stage
Schools Performance at 12:30pmFull Circle is presented as part of the double bill Passing It On


Australian Premiere
A NIGHT’S GAME

Join us as the rising stars of contemporary dance, twin sisters Kristina and Sadé Alleyne (Alleyne Dance) bring their internationally acclaimed show to Australia for the first time.

Trained in African, Kathak and Latin dance, as well as hip hop and circus skills, the sisters combine moments of extraordinary physicality with grace and beauty to explore the prospect of incarceration.

In the workshop prior to the show, students will have the rare chance to experience the sisters’ fast-paced and dynamic movement technique inspired and developed from working with the likes of Akram Khan, Retina Dance Company and Ultima Vez.
