    A great Christmas present for Tracks dance. Why not support us by pledging money for our 2013 Festival show - Zombies in the Banyan Tree. Tracks Dance needs you!  Yes you!

    We are seeking funding in order to bring Dewa Soma - gamelan player and musician from the Bina Remaja Troupe -  to Darwin to be part of the creative development and performance of Zombies in the Banyan Tree. Zombies is a youth focused, outdoor site specific performance where traditional Balinese, break and contemporary western dance and music forms collide. Zombies explores our fast changing cultural landscape and the excitement and fear that comes when popular culture and long held traditions clash and merge.

    Our aims for the project are to:

    • Forge new relationships with Balinese cultural workers which will lead to the creation of choreography, cultural content and music for the Zombies in the Banyan Tree performance
    • Build long-term collaborative relationships with cultural institutions in Bali to encourage and support future exchanges
    • Engage with the local Indonesian community and ensure that Tracks staff and the company in general are more informed about the cultural life of contemporary Bali through a series of workshops and masterclasses.

    This project will strengthen the relationships between performance practitioners in both Bali and Darwin and showcase the music and dance created as a result of these new connections. We aim to bring together a mix of traditional and contemporary dancers, choreographers and musicians, as well as filmmakers and cultural leaders to guide this project and ensure that it has cultural integrity and relevance both in the Australian and Balinese context.

    We are seeking a total of $5,000 and we only get it if we reach this amount, otherwise all donated money gets returned to the donor.

    Go to pozible.com   Click the green 'support project' box and follow the prompts. It's that easy. We will be forever grateful to you.

    Tracks welcomes local dance practitioners Bryn Wackett, Anokai Lancaster, Jenelle Saunders and the D*City Rockers as recipients of Tracks 2013 Studio Residency. We also welcome Brisbane based movement collective, Kinetic.

    The residencies will develop and support local dance practice by offering opportunities for choreographers and dance artists to work on new contemporary dance ideas through research, development and experimentation.

    Bryn will use the residency as an opportunity for exploration to create a selection of short, personal compositions pieces, as well as collaborating with other members of the dance sector.

    Anokai will develop ideas towards a new contemporary dance project encompassing emotion through movement. She will draw inspiration from Martha Graham’s practice of producing a dance repertoire which symbolises emotion.

    Jenelle will use her time to reinvigorate, create, discover, design and make original dance. She is keen to collaborate with other dancers

    The D*City Rockers will both develop their own skills and mentor up and coming youth. Their residency aims to enhance and grow the local hip hop scene.

    Kinetic will work with local East Timorese to collaborate and share ideas prior to a  trip to Timor Leste in February 2013, strengthening creative links between Brisbane, Darwin and Timor Leste.

    An informal forum and showing will take place in the Tracks Studio on the evening of March 27, 2013
