This creative development is an artistic experimentation, bringing together artists from two distinct performance groups: Phluxus2 Dance Collective and Aha Ensemble.
Under the direction of Daniele Constance and Nerida Matthaei (Phluxus2 Dance Collective), the eight collaborating artists will experiment in the creation of a new contemporary performance work.
This work seeks to investigate the merging of unique artistic practices through collaborative creation; specifically investigating the similarities, differences and complexities of identity, creativity, artistry and physicality of trained dancers and performance artists with disability and impairment.
The development process will explore the juxtaposition of the artists, their bodies and identities; experimenting together to develop a shared movement language and collaborative practice across a rich and diverse range of personal performance histories.
