Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre

…. proudly supported by The Drill Hall Theatre Company
Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre presents ENCOUNTERS, Sprung!!’s latest, beautiful dance theatre work. Encounters explores the journey of individuation and the quest for identity and belonging with 12 dancers, with and without disability. Artistic Director Michael Hennessy, who danced with Sydney Dance Company for 9 years, leads this project with local dance company Sprung!! The work incorporates film backdrops by Fernleigh filmmaker John Rado.
Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre, led by Michael Hennessy, develops dance theatre works that inspire mainstream audiences and promote a more inclusive society. The nonprofit organization also provides dance and theatre workshops for persons in the community with and without disability, with a focus on collaborative and disability-led process, and providing opportunities for training in integrated dance, dance and physical theatre.
The Encounters Premiere at Mullumbimby will kick off a week of conversation on Arts, Health and Disability that will culminate in repeat performances of Encounters at Lennox Heads Community Centre as part of an Arts and Health Weekend, with a disability, arts and health Forum chaired by Dr Robyn Brady, Paediatrician and Sprung!! President. Catherine Marciniak from ABC Open intends to extend the conversation through collations of Arts-Health local stories and inviting guest posts and radio reads throughout the week.
Sprung!! thanks the Drill Hall Theatre Company for their support with Encounters.
