LEARN THE REPERTOIRE, SEE THE SHOW
Dance Bites is a curated, signature program of contemporary dance works presented by FORM Dance Projects. The Dance Bites season features some of Australia’s most innovative and exciting independent choreographers and performers.
This program is a unique opportunity for dance students to learn the repertoire from each of the Dance Bites performances in a workshop led by the presenting company. Following this, students experience a matinee performance and post show Q&A with the artistic team.
“At the still point, there the dance is…” – TS Eliot
A synthesis of dance, video, sound and installation, choreographer Linda Luke brings her new solo performance Still Point Turning to FORM Dance Projects. Initially inspired by TS Eliot’s poem Burnt Norton, Still Point Turning explores perceptions of time, stillness, and turbulence. It reflects upon the fragmented and transient nature of contemporary culture, alluding to euro centric history and our obsession with ‘clock’ time. Juxtaposing this, Linda reflects on the nature of cosmic time, the eternal cycle of living and dying, and that deep – yet elusive – silence that resides in every one of us.
