RADICAL TRANSPARENCY
We Are Here Company
Directed By Emma Saunders

Radical Transparency is a new rollicking work by the We are Here Company exploring the intersection between honesty and artifice, wild and tame, light and dark, raw and manufactured, and how on earth in this day and age we are going to present new dance work that is sustainable, wild, buoyant and afloat while it feels like everything is sinking.

The We Are Here Company holds artistry, performative range and collaboration in its work, contributing and redefining the current look, approach and style of Australian contemporary dance. The We Are Here Company is a new, breakthrough contemporary dance company like no other. It comprises of powerful performers (aged 20-30 yrs) who are open minded, able to dance with ‘heart’ and exhibit performative and choreographic potential.

At its helm is the formidable and award winning artist Emma Saunders. From directing the highly successful ENCOUNTER season, commissioned and produced by FORM Dance Projects, presented by Sydney Festival 2020 to the We Are Here Company, Emma brings her wealth of dance experience, energy and generosity.
