Artistic Director Ruth Osborne says “as young artists, they have worked over the last year in collaboration with amazing choreographers including James Bachelor, Jodie Farrugia, Fiona Malone, Rowan Marchingo, Natalie CursioJoshua Lowe, Alison Plevey and Jamie Winbank.  And many of them did a special choreographic workshop presented by the Tanja  Liedtke Foundation, with Amelia McQueen and Kristina Chan. Their ideas are their own, and they are primed from an amazing range of choreographic processes and practices over the year.”
