Year 13 students were treated to an awesome immersive dance workshop with Daisy Sanders, the University of Otago Caroline Plummer Community Dance Fellow.
Year 13 drama students are currently working on solo, pair, and group devised performance assessments for their Devising standard AS 3.2. To support their movement work and to help them to better connect with their bodies in space and the use of energy, Daisy took them through a range of fun movement exercises.
Daisy Sanders: is a Boorloo (Perth) based independent artist, a proud senior company member of Sensorium Theatre and a WAAPA graduate (2013 BA Dance with 2017 First Class Honours). She devises immersive, multidisciplinary choreographic works which have an enduring foundation in somatic practice, community building, experimentation and play. Daisy’s original works include A Resting Mess (2016-current), Night Dancing (2020-current), Womb for World Weeping (for SITU8:CITY 2022) and Room to Rest (for Arts Centre Melbourne’s Alter State Festival, 2021). https://strutdance.org.au/artist/daisy-sanders/
