Artists unite for Triple Bill dance
A NEW cross-artform project Dwell-A Triple Bill has connected emerging and professional artists with and without disability from the Northern Rivers to create three short dance works to be performed on next Saturday, September 28 at the Byron Theatre.
The project will include dancers, visual artists and musicians collaborating to produce a dynamic one-off performance.
"RED Inc sees participation in the arts as a powerful way to enhance social inclusion and to create opportunities for people with disabilities," says CEO Marie Gale.
"Collaborative events such as this strengthen connections within communities and contribute to social change."
The choreographers will be interpreting the artwork of local RED Inc visual artists Mbatha Nguta, Nathan Gooley and Christopher Wilkinson.
Local musicians Tralala Blip have also been commissioned to produce the soundscapes for the production.
The event begins at 6pm on Saturday next week when Rene Bolten, winner of this year's Northern Rivers Portrait Prize, opens an exhibition of the works that provided the initial inspiration for the dance.
This will be an opportunity to meet the artists and guest presenters, including Sydney-based environmental campaigner through dance Dean Walsh and NSW Greens MLC with the arts and disability portfolio Jan Barham. The performance begins at 7pm and there will be an open public forum and Q&A immediately afterwards.
