2013 Tanja Liedtke Fellowship
The 2013 Tanja Liedtke Fellowship offers a program of unique opportunities for a young Australian dancer/choreographer to experience and participate in a range of creative development and cultural exchange activities in Berlin and Frankfurt.
The Fellowship has been open for applications for three weeks and there has been considerable interest and enthusiasm from many young dancer/choreographers. Similar to the first and second Fellowships in 2009 and 2011, we expect this year’s selection process to be very competitive.

Slight - a work by Tanja Liedtke - presented by WAAPA.
On 17 November, the graduating students of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) presented Tanja Liedtke’s work, Slight.
Slight premiered in 2006 in Taiwan. The work was commissioned by Taipeidea, and created on students of the Taipei International Academy for Elite Performers.
For the WAAPA remount of Slight, Kristina Chan and Amelia McQueen started to work with the students in July, and in November Kristina spent a second rehearsal period to bring the work to performance. Slight was part of a quadruple bill entitled Shine. The program included Fokine’s Les Sylphides. Slight is actually a study of the enigmatic sylph, and its currency in the Romantic ballet period.
