Common Anomalies is a triple bill of solo dances by young artists, vastly different in style, exploring their cultural identities.
The three works will explore each of the performer’s unique personal histories. The performances adapt breakdance, visual art, contemporary techniques, vogue and folklore styles in dynamic vignettes.
Each performer’s work will have a unique approach however the common thread between the pieces is the anomalies of each artist – the fusing of things rarely seen together, to create something unique and personal for each.
Performer Carl Sciberras said, “Myself, Imanuel [Dado] and Bhenji [Ra] all hail from families with diverse Asian and European backgrounds. Our ancestry, our experiences and our communities directly impact our decisions, our views and our approaches to making. Although we are very different artists working in different ways, these solos are all personal expressions. This program is an important and exciting venture for us and we’re excited to share it with audiences.”
FORM Dance Projects have become the dynamic hub for contemporary Australian dance in Sydney. FORM’s aim is to support Australian choreographers in all stages of their career; develop artists’ national profiles; provide valuable professional development opportunities; engage with the local community, including young people and cultural performers from Western Sydney, in meaningful ways; and connect with audiences.
