‘Moves & Sorts’ at The Actors Studio Lot 10

After performing to a full house during The Actors Studio at Lot 10’s opening week, MyDance Alliance is back again! On 23 January, MyDance Alliance will present the first of its new Dancebox series in The Actors Studio theatre on the rooftop at Lot 10.

Serving up an affordable and accessible fare of fresh experimental dance works, MyDance Alliance brings you the first Dancebox of 2010 entitled Moves & Sorts, featuring:

In a collision between dance and drawing, the movements of a dancer are transformed into a series of lines drawn live by the artist. Other dancers then use these visual cues to interpret their own movement. A unique performative process which changes every time it is performed, Strings gives us insight into new ways to produce art and movement. Performed by Australian visual artist Rochelle Haley and dancers of Rimbun Dahan and ASWARA.

“You look at me looking at me looking at you.” An improvisational work performed by an ensemble of dancers presenting LAPAR Lab choreographer Low Shee Hoe’s exploration of the relationship between the city and me, myself and I.

The first serious dance work from young choreographer Hii Ing Fung, winner of Best New Female Talent at Short+Sweet Dance 2009. An elegant example of partner work between male and female dancers, first premiered at TDS Festival of Dance, and now revolutionized for the stage at TAS!

A new work from this community of women who express their feminine power through Tribal Style Belly Dance. Led by artistic director Nanci Traynor, Tribe tells tales of ancient magical journeys, enhanced by lush textiles, swishing tassels and heavy tribal jewelry. Saturday’s performance will be accompanied by music mixed live by a DJ from Paris!
