Out of the Studio

Date: 21 Aug 2018

Now in its fifth year, Out of the Studio is a creative development opportunity for emerging choreographers to develop new ideas and a platform to present a new work to audiences in a theatre context.

Lucky Lartey’s Full Circle is an investigation into the long standing relationship and history between hip hop culture and African oral traditions.

“I wanted to create a work that highlighted the tradition of storytelling in West Africa and how it was used to pass on and share knowledge,” Lartey explains. “How this tradition was then adapted by hip hop culture as a tool for survival and a way of giving a voice to marginalised youth.”

Helpmann Award winning artist, Sara Black will be exploring our heart-beat, pulse, and life source in a closely interwoven partnership of sound and movement.

“From three weeks after fertilisation to death we have a beat that sits within us, for most it is a constant presence, until it simply, stops,” says Black.

“At a six-week scan I saw the fast, flickering movement of my babies heart beat for the first time. That evolving rhythm would be a relative constant for the rest of his life. His body was not yet fully formed, but his beat had begun. This has inspired my research for this project.”

Working with Lartey and Black are performers and collaborators Rachell Dade, Alyx Dennison, Brianna Kell, Jasmin Lancaster, Cody Laverty, Byron Mark, Cassandra Merwood and Kassidy Waters.
