NIDA in ‘Choreography’ by Garry Stewart
A new dance programme simply entitled Choreography will be presented by the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) on October 21-28 at Carriageworks, Eveleigh.
Featuring NIDA second-year acting and graduating Costume, Design, Production and Properties students, Choreography has been devised and directed by Garry Stewart, the award-winning 15-year artistic director of Australian Dance Theatre. Stewart is currently NIDA’s 2014 Seaborn, Broughton & Walford Artist-in-Residence.
Using movement, singing, text and irony, Choreography promises to “redefine dance.” It will delve into the patterns and kinesis found everywhere in life – biological systems, social media, economics, migration and war. This playful and exhilarating new work claims it will “forever change how you see choreography.”
