October E News

As the end of the year is approaching FORM and Riverside are looking forward to presenting the final Dance Bites 2012. Dean Walsh’s Prime: Orderly Oct 25-27. Dean is busy in rehearsal with Kathryn Puie and Natalie Ayton at Connect Studios. Reflecting on the last 2 years of his Australia Council Dance Fellowship Dean said, ‘It has given me time to research my conceptual focus on non-human habitat, natural environment and the need for us to gain more awareness of these and the species who inhabit them – if not for their conservation and longevity then for ours.”

Don’t miss this performance, a distillation of Dean’s Australia Council for the Arts Dance Fellowship and his choreographic research into marine environments. Prime: Orderly will be structured on a solo performed by Dean Walsh, AnEnemy which investigates perceptions of predator and enemy in the marine world and a trio, Under Pressure, performed by Dean Walsh, Kathryn Puie and Natalie Ayton, compressing various enviro-physiological and scientific aspects of an actual scuba dive into a choreographic suspension.


There will be Q & A sessions after each performance with guest facilitators from the arts, science and diving communities. Opening night, Thursday Oct 25, Q & A facilitator will be Professor Sarah Miller, University of Wollongong.
