Asialink, in partnership with the dance board, has selected five outstanding Australian choreographers to develop new collaborative works in Japan over the next two years.
The successful choreographers are:
- Kate Denborough
- Sue Healey
- Jo Lloyd
- Tess de Quincey and
- Leigh Warren and Dancers.
These choreographers will have the oppurtunity to collaborate with an exciting mix of other Japanese choreographers, dancers, designers, architects, screen-based and new media practitioners.
Projects range from the development of a dance video to dance performance/installations to multimedia presentations in Australia and Japan.
This program celebrates and extends the rich relationships established between Australia and Japan, and will culminate during 2006 the ‘Year of Cultural Exchange’ between the Australian and Japanese governments.
This Program is supported by the Australia Council, Arts Victoria, NSW Ministry of the Arts, Critical Path and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi Japan SA Award through Arts SA.
