ONE COMPANY – MANY VOICES
In 2015 Dancenorth embarked on a bold new phase of artistic direction.
Designed to support a broad range of artistic programs, revitalise cultural engagement activities and diversify performances, the company has formally adopted a strategy that will see work presented from a diverse range of creators.
Led by Artistic Director Kyle Page, this new structure sees the appointment of two eminent and nationally renowned Artistic Advisors, Cheryl Stock and Bradley Chatfield, who work closely with the company in guiding its artistic pathway.
By inviting a selection of choreographers and artists to collaborate and work with the company, Dancenorth emerges as a creative hub for a broad range of artistic voices. This is a bold innovation for the company and we look forward to presenting work by some of Australia’s most exciting dance theatre creators.
During 2015 we celebrate 30 years since Dancenorth opened its doors, and our 2015 program celebrates dancers, choreographers and former artistic directors who have contributed so much to the history of the company.
Increased cultural engagement activities are also underway, providing enriching opportunities for a broad range of community members. Artistic Director Kyle Page is delighted to be at the helm of this dynamic contemporary dance company at such a vibrant time in its history.
Based on significant scientific developments over the last 15 years Artistic Director Kyle Page has established a daily practice for the company dancers, which incorporates several mind / body techniques designed to develop the cognitive processes associated with creativity. Kyle seeks to involve the dancers in a much more thinking capacity within the creation of new work whilst simultaneously nurturing technical virtuosity. He is currently working with mentor Dr. Scott de la Hunta, exploring the dance / science nexus.
