We are collaborating with film maker Martin Fox, composer Michael Toisuta and choreographer Linda Luke for an exciting new project. we will make a dance film celebrating 2 important things in life: home and dancing. Over the month of November we will have dance classes and workshops to share ideas and develop ‘movement poems’ as content for the film. Dance Diaries Ultimo is part of a larger vision for creating a number of DANCE DIARIES projects in neighbourhoods in the City of Sydney.

All of Us Project
Exploring different kinds of gestures that mean the same to different cultures and the same gestures meaning different things to different cultures. From that we will create a story, with rap songs, moves with laughter and magic and perform in the park, on the street, in Central Station as an experiment. Then, we will create a film about Gestures and People around the world and debut it on International Day.
