‘Industry to Nature’ – These artists in collaboration with Director Cadi McCarthy from Catapult Dance Choreographic Hub came up with the brief – interpret our City’s journey from Industry to Nature.
The artists responded with a series of dance phrases that celebrate Newcastle’s unique landscape and the City’s revitalised connection to the shoreline and ocean. Industrial boots and a white linen shirt are taken to the beach with bathers, reflecting our city’s unique composition and lifestyle. They also inspired the sound design to carry these themes of the drama of industry and the emergence of nature. The various dance phrases are explained in a series of three short stories.
