No upcoming dates
From June 6 - 8, FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres will present Passing It On, a sensational double bill embodying movement shifts influenced by voices from the past to the present, looking back and forward.
Originally from Japan, Ryuichi Fujimura traces back his personal dance history in How I Practice My Religion, and unpacks what is archived in his dancing body. Evolving from his love for dance, this work is dedicated to his first three dance teachers: Margaret Lasica, Caroline English and Anastasi Siotas.
In Full Circle, Ghana-born dancer and choreographer Lucky Lartey draws upon his knowledge of traditional rhythms and dance, and his understanding of contemporary movement practices to explore the longstanding relationship between hip hop culture and West African storytelling traditions.
Also showing on Saturday 8 June as part of Passing It On is Movement (R)evolution Africa, a film featuring nine African choreographers whose riveting stories challenge stereotypes of “traditional Africa” to unveil soul-shaking responses to the beauty and tragedy of 21st century Africa.
