This initiative, the result of a partnership between the Australia Council‟s Dance and Music Boards, is just one example of many cross-artform collaborative programs being undertaken by the Council in 2012.
“This initiative opens up many exciting possibilities,” says Matthew Hindson, Chair of the Music Board at the Australia Council. “It will provide dancers and musicians with creative space to work together….The intention is to encourage new collaborative relationships, where both parties contribute equally to the creative process.”
“It‟s exciting for choreographers and dancers to work with composers and musicians in making a new creation, building from the start of the process to make the music and movement each enhancing the other,” Chrissy Sharp, Chair of the Dance Board adds. “We hope this initiative will bring thrilling new performances to our stages.”
