Water and oil can’t be mixed, but what about mayonnaise?
Are there other opposites that could mix?
Could they somehow get closer or separate or merge?
How do they change and what makes them change?
I have learnt how to apply ideas into choreography through my experience in YAP. Creating movement from the gallery and the Botanic Garden visits was a highlight for me. It was a great experience to get so much wonderful feedback from Alison through the process of learning and gaining choreographic skills.

What now? What then?
What how? What when?
The lifespan of decay and destruction.
The tireless timeless tyrant. Technology
The Young Artist Program has been great to create alongside other artists in Adelaide and to be given the opportunity to create a dance work with a safety net. With no pressure involved it allows room for trial and error, which for me allowed for more creativity to flow and the ability to test new choreographic and improvisation techniques.

Touch is a dance work which physicalises the way neural networks occur and are connected in the brain. If you have ever been reminded of a memory triggered by a song or a smell, then you have lived the context of this work. Fall into the dream-like world of the subconscious and explore the journey inside the brain’s networks of emotion, senses and memory.
In the last two weeks I have learnt countless new tools to create movement, all thanks to the generous mentorship from Alison Currie and the great support from the other YAP choreographers. The way I think about the process of dance making has evolved and I cannot wait to utilize it all in my upcoming works in 2021 and beyond.
You’ve made me

Whatever you see is not me anymore.
I can’t tell you who I will be tomorrow,
and I don’t care if you hate what you just saw.
The Young Artist Program has given me the opportunity to develop skills and confidence in producing my own work. The Dance Hub programming and mentorship of Alison Currie was valuable to the refinement and clarity of my creative process.
