YW2's Inaugural season, PILOT has landed

PILOT is a collection of eight short works choreographed and performed by YW2 collective members. This season of works will be an opportunity to showcase the diversity in our movement interests and range of abilities with you. We are eight emerging makers who are excited to take risks and create works that challenge how we experience dance and how it is presented.

Our eight choreographers are Aimee Schollum, Angela Dexter, Chris Chua, Emma Riches, Georgina Bond, Jaala Jensen, Jacinta Martorella and Leandra Osmond.

Wednesday May 31st @ 7:30pm
Thursday June 1st @ 7:30pm

Saturday June 2nd @ 2:00pm (Open Access Show) & 7:30pm

Please Support Our Pozible Campaign

We’re pretty special, there isn’t another group like us in Melbourne! There are youth and professional dance companies here in Melbourne but there is an apparent gap between the leap from youth to professional - that’s where we fit in. We provide a space for up and coming dance artists to explore their interests with the support of each other and the community (this includes you!). Your funding will be invested into the beginnings of something new and exciting for the Melbourne dance scene.

Pilot is our first season of work, so why not see what we can do!  The funds will go towards making this season a reality for us. A successful inaugural season will help ensure the likelihood of future projects and in turn, the growth and development of the YW2 collective. This is your opportunity to be one of the founding supporters of YW2 and the next generation of Melbourne’s movers and makers.

We are a collective driven by a want and need to extend our fascination of movement and remain curious about our craft. Your support will enable us to be active members of the dance industry and further enrich the Australian contemporary arts landscape.

Through Pozible, we are aiming to raise $5,250 by May 14th. Please consider helping us reach our goal.

 

Launched in 2017, our collective is made up of individuals from a range of tertiary institutions who have banded together to make and to move.

YW2 functions as a supportive platform for recent dance graduates to bridge the gap between their completion of training and the professional industry. We are a committed group of dancers who train, rehearse and laugh together on a weekly basis to ensure we continue to develop and refine our craft.

To date the 2017 collective have had the opportunity to learn from dance artists such as Becky Hilton, Phillip Adams, Luke George, Deanne Butterworth, Jo lloyd and Israel Aloni.
