Test audience

HOD Email Banner Draft 2Last night, a five minute excerpt from 100 Years Of The History Of Dance As Told By One Man In 60 Minutes With An Energetic Group Finale was presented at the monthly Angry Mime event, to test out some ideas and audience response.

Admittedly, it was 60 minutes, and there was no finale, but the audience reaction was very strong. Can’t wait to go into development for this show in New York in just a few weeks!

Queensland Ballet

little-red-riding-hood-2_hero_gallery_wideDelighted to have finished my first week with Queensland Ballet. I’ll be performing in a brand new ballet (BRAND new – as in original music, fresh designs, new choreography) directed by Lucas Jervies. Little Red Riding Hood will play from June 21-28 for Brisbane’s ‘Out of The Box’ festival for children.
Get ready for some serious feistiness! This is Little Red like you’ve never seen her before, as a superhero, who’s red cape gives her an incredible imagination! I will be playing Red’s nasty little brother, who loves nothing more than violence, wolves

and of course, annoying his big sister.

Little Red is Queensland Ballet’s very first production in the ‘

My First Ballet’ series.

Green Room Awards

Well, what a night!

So much fun to be nominated for Best Male Dancer at this year’s Green Room Awards. No win this time, but was delighted that the honour went to my dear friend David Mack for his work with Sydney Dance Company. David and I played Gepetto and Pinocchio respectively in West Australian Ballet’s production of Pinocchio back in 2012. Was fantastic to see him win such an honour.

And in true Amy Shumer style, I took my sister to the awards ceremony. I’d good like that.3889_10154613012263906_3089297976973565008_n

Nelkin

What a treat to catch Pina Bausch’s beautiful production of Nelkin at the Adelaide Festival.

Thanks to my trip to Wuppertal last year, I’ve got a few friends in the cast now, so was great to catch up with them while they’re in Australia.

 

Also a treat to run into two fellow WAAPA graduates and two WAAPA lecturers at the performance! The brilliant Nanette Hassall and former-Pina Bausch dancer Michael Whaites were there to see the beautiful show. Here we are showing our favourite hand gestures from the show!
