Commissioned by The Performance Space, Sydney
Co – curated with Jeff Kahn
Return to Sender explored the influence of international creative relationships on the practice of Australian dance artists.
For Return to Sender, curators Paul Gazzola and Jeff Khan invited eight Australian dance-makers to devise new works that recreate the choreography, score, or essence of an international peer’s work. The resulting works ranged from reconstructed solos, collaborative texts to performed instructions. Together, they provided an insight into the creative collaborations that influence Australian artists’ work, which take place overseas and are often out-of-sight to their audiences due to distance, geography and expense.
Artists: Alison Currie, Nadia Cusimano, Matthew Day, Atlanta Eke, Jane McKernan, Latai Taumoepeau, Tony Yap and Yumi Umiumare.
