Dear all ,
How are you ?
Hello from Tokyo.
Homeless Dance Company http://www.homelessdance.com/
will have their
performance in Melbourne.
Japanese dancer, Ms. Motoko Ikeda, will dance there.
Her image and releated Project, LADEN 2004, is in my article in Channels.
Please check it out.
If you have chance to meet Ms. Ikeda, please support her.
Homeless Dance Co. is a by-product of the Little Asia Dance Exchange Network
Tour of 2004. Identifying the need for development and maintenance of
international relationships in dance, the idea of Homeless Dance Company was
conceived : a regular meeting of the LADEN
04 participants over the next 10 years in their respective countries and
We are Chan Yu-chun [Taiwan], Anna Cheng [Hong Kong], Natalie Cursio
[Australia], Motoko Ikeda [Japan], Jung Young doo [Korea] and Daniel Yeung
[Hong Kong]. This year visual artist Elizabeth Boyce will join the team to
develop design ideas for AUSTRAL-ASIAN-DUAL-INVASION.
Homeless is a ‘nomadic company’, seeking to present dance events,
collaborations and performances globally, while including local artists and
creating new networks in dance and the broader arts. In each country we
gather other artists to the projects, creating a ‘snowball effect’ and
effectively expanding company membership and developing new relations.
In April 2007, the team will meet in Melbourne to work on creative
development of AUSTRAL-ASIAN-DUAL-INVASION at the Meat Market [supported by
Culture Lab and Arts Victoria]. The team will then travel to Hong Kong to
continue development and perform at The Cultural Activities Hall, Ngau Chi
Wan Civic Centre, supported by Hong Kong’s Leisure and Services Department
and the Asian Cultural Council. From there we head to Taipei to continue
development and perform at the Experimental Theatre of the National Chiang
Kai-shek Cultural Centre.
Homeless Dance Co. gratefully acknowledges the producers of the Little Asia
Dance Exchange as without them we would never have met.
They are : Dance Forum Taipei, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Esplanade Theatres on
the Bay Singapore, ANcreative Tokyo, Hirano Productions Melbourne, and
