The Radiance Dance Project 2011

Event date: 
9 February 2011 to 31 December 2011
Rosevear Pl Majura Community Centre Hall
Dickson, ACT

This program is a 40 week inclusive community arts project open to women with *and* without disabilities in the ACT region using the mediums of creative dance and movement theatre and culminating in two public performances. It is an annual project offered each year since 2005 by independent community arts worker Morgan Jai-Morincome with co-facilitator Min Mae and funded in 2011 through ArtsACT.

 The project values difference as a rich source of creative material and promotes a broad definition of dance accessible to all people. No specific skills, abilities or experience are required to participate. It is an opportunity for women from diverse backgrounds to come together and create, collaborate and connect.

 Participants in general range in age from 20's through to 60's. They come from diverse backgrounds experiencing a wide range of disability types and no identified disability at all. Participants are in employment, unemployed, retired  and attend because they want to experience the wealth of benefits this project offers individuals and community.

 In 2011 we will be working with Jane Aubourg's innovative and breath-taking compositions and music. Jane is a musician, composer and performer from Wollongong who has graciously agreed to let us use her music and to perform live with us in December. For more information about Jane and to listen to some of her music please click on the following link.
