In our following newsletter we will bring you a report, plus photos and film excerpts, from the 2011 Tanja Liedtke Fellowship program which saw Katarzyna Sitarz spend 7 weeks immersed in the Australian contemporary dance environment.
Central to her program was a creative residency at Arts House, where Kasia, in collaboration with local artists Zoe Scoglio, Matt Cornell and Joshua Tyler spent every awake hour working on a creative project that explored the concepts, histories and notions of ‘home’. The project meshed text, film, movement, sound and installation.
The Tanja Liedtke Foundation would like to thank Fellowship project partners Arts House Melbourne and Lucy Guerin Inc, and within those organisations we would especially like to thank Lucy Geurin, Michaela Coventry, Deanna Smart, Steven Richardson and Lexie Wood. Their enthusiasm, commitment and generosity has been truly amazing.
