Christina was invited to perform in 'Winter Filament' with Tony Yap Company at Federation Square. The work was a deep improvised exploration delving into metaphysical, psychological and subconscious states. Performed out in the open at Fed Square and integrated with the Light in Winter light installations the work was beautiful, wild, raw and moving. There was exquisite freedom and expression through the performance - a place that encapsulates what being a performer is. Thank you to Tony Yap for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful work. Photos by Dylan. www.tonyyapcompany.com
Christina has been invited to present a performance of Body of Ice at the Antarctica Festival + Conference at the Australian National University in Canberra on Saturday June 25. She will also be presenting a talk on her work.
Exploring the cycles, movement and extreme nature of Antarctic ice and our physical connection and impact to it, Body of Ice will be presented in dance and visual projection with a soundscape made entirely of sounds of Antarctic ice recorded by Philip Samartzis.
Christina has been rehearsing with her amazing dancers and exploring Antarctic ice from every angle - ice particles to glaciers, seasonal cycles to intricate shifts. Photos cover the studio floor during each rehearsal and extensive research into the Antarctic ice has been filtering through bodies in space - and bodies in pools and on ice. Stunning results so far and so much more exploring to come!
Christina has been awarded an Arts SA Professional Development Grant to spend January training with Zen Zen Zo in Brisbane, undertaking Suzuki Actor Training Method, Butoh, The Viewpoints and Contact Improv. Thank you to Arts SA!
