slight at WAAPA
slight to be performed at WAAPA graduation performances in Perth.
Tanja’s intriguing work slight was originally made for students of the International Dance Elite Academy Taipei in 2006. This year, in November, the work will be performed by the graduating students of the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), BA Dance course. Kristina Chan and Amelia McQueen have been responsible for teaching and rehearsing the work as well as supervising the stage and costume design.
The season premières on 17 November at the Geoff Gibbs Theatre, Perth. The re-staging of slight is a project developed by the Tanja Liedtke Foundation (Germany) in partnership with WAAPA, with additional support through the Tanja Liedtke Endowment and the Meredith Brooks Endowment.
