Projects 2013

Nov 2013 - April 2014 The Myanmar Project

Remnant Dance artists will be visiting the Andrew Youth Development Centre (AYDC) in Yangon, Myanmar (Burma) at the invitation of Lian Thang, Managing Director and Chairman of Myanmar Vision International and supported by the Australian charity MyKids Inc, which is registered with Global Development Group, Australia. 

The project will involve creatively engaging with the stories of orphaned children living at the AYDC and will result in the production of a short contemporary dance film about how we connect with each other on different fronts.

There are three main stages of development for the project:

1. Initial meeting: November 21-December 3, 2013

Dance Maker Lucinda Coleman and Film Maker Cara Phillips will visit the children at the AYDC to prepare for the film shoot.

2. Film shoot: March 1-15, 2014

Remnant Dance artists will facilitate creative workshops with the children at the AYDC and shoot the contemporary dance film on location in Yangon.

3. Film premiere: April 14-22, 2014

Remnant Dance will premiere the dance film on location in Yangon as part of an art exhibition / dance installation performance tour.


25-31 MARCH, 2014

Co-Lab: Art Exhibition

Multi-disciplinary artist Amanda Humphries has generated a series of watercolour images and photographic works responding to the Remnant Dance artists in action. Inspired by the ephemeral nature of dance as a medium and the philosophies behind the performances, the images play with choreographic concepts; in a still medium. This is a collaboration exploring expressive possibilities across platforms, taking into consideration ideas about connection and sensory engagement.

The Co-Lab Exhibition will raise awareness and support for the artists working on The Myanmar Project.Connection and collaboration are integral aspects of the Remnant Dance approach to working with the children in Myanmar. Sensory processes are front and foremost to connecting with the children and the stories they want to tell.  

The Co-Lab will celebrate the story of how a charity organization like MyKids can work in partnership with performing arts collective like Remnant Dance to tell the stories of impoverished children living in one of the poorest countries in the world: from the perspective of the children themselves. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the photographic works will be donated to The Myanmar Project.  

Check back soon for more details of the Exhibition!
