Passing It On

Date: 3 May 2019

FORM Dance projects presents a double bill of solo dance works embodying movement shifts influenced by voices from the past to the present, looking back and forward.

In How I Practice My Religion, Ryuichi Fujimura traces back his personal dance history, and unpacks what is archived in his dancing body. Evolving from his love for dance, this work is dedicated to his first three dance teachers: Margaret Lasica, Caroline English and Anastasi Siotas.

“As dancers, we gain our knowledge through contact with teachers, choreographers and peers, and accumulate it in our bodies,” says Fujimura. “In making this autobiographic solo, I wanted to share my journey and unravel what my body remembers”.

In Full Circle, Ghana-born dancer and choreographer Lucky Lartey draws upon his knowledge of traditional rhythms and dance, and his understanding of contemporary movement practices to explore the longstanding relationship between hip hop culture and West African storytelling traditions.

Lartey says: “I wanted to create a work that highlights the tradition of storytelling in West Africa and how it was used to pass on and share knowledge; how this tradition was then adopted by hip hop culture as a tool for survival and a way of giving a voice to marginalised young people”.
