    About Kirsty Duncan:

    Kirsty has 10 years experience choreographing contemporary pieces for stage performance including 3 works in Adelaide Fringe shows. She has a passion for working with adult dancers who while not professional performers, are experienced, skilled dancers with a love for dance. These dancers bring a joy to their practice and have varied life experiences which can enrich a piece.

    Kirsty's process begins in collaboration with the dancers to generate movement in response to themes or ideas. She enjoys crafting a dance work from this diverse movement base, exploiting her graphic design sense - ‘designing’ with the movement and bodies in space.



    About The Lab (Light Square, Adelaide):

    The Lab is an intimate and fully immersive, multi-functional performance space wrapped in 50 square metres of state-of-the-art LED displays - supporting art and culture while leading it in entirely new directions. Kirsty is excited to utilise the dramatic wrapping screens to create a backdrop for the dance work that will make for a stunning and memorable experience. The Lab is located on the same site at Beags, an outdoor bar and dining area that will be the perfect spot for our audience to meet and hang out before and after the show.
