Saturday 9 May, 3pm
“Completely switching gears, came one of the great highlights of the night, Velociraptor, choreographed by Scott Ewen. This is a world premiere and what thrilling choreography to give young dancers. With its slow start and rumbling score, it portrays the acts of unity and civil inattention that can embrace or lock humans out from one another. This is terrifically relatable content for young performers and the 11 dancers brought power and drive to the work as they seemed to be acting against invisible forces within and outside of themselves.” Susan Bendal – Dance Australia
