1. Uncomfort zone

Choreographer: Charlotte Sans

Dancers: Charlie Lloyd, Diana Micairan, Elly Tew, Hendrik Lesmana, Mona Isabell Suck and Romain Hassanin.

Being surprised and amazed, destabilizing and surpassing ourselves, being thrilled by the risk, satisfying our curiosity, spicing up our lives. Slowly taming the unknown, this unfamiliar and unpredictable place where there is a high risk to trip, scratch ourselves, or fall. Flirting with the limits of your comfort zone, until you realise how enjoyable the discomfort is. Then, there is no way back.

Choreographer: Romain Hassanin

Dancers: Emily Laursen, Rachel Mackie, Diana Micairan, Jai Leeworthy, Charlie Lloyd and Romain Hassanin.

…when you look inward at yourself, you become the viewer of yourself, and those moments of questioning turn to; is that really me? or is it just a response to the environment. a brief form of neurosis maybe, a so called natural response to stressors and stimuli. neurosis is ok friend…

8. Is it raining where you are?

Choreographer and Dancer: Jacqui Maida

Costumes by: Sue Maida

Rain is viewed as an inconvenience. A disruption. Something for us to avoid and work around. But despite being seen as this disruption, rain can bring a collection of joyous and blissful moments. This piece aims to evoke the experiences of when life stops, and the rain begins.
