SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Jumping to Conclusions
Group 1 | 5 – 6 September
1972, when baby boomers were young: Tim Shadbolt of “Bullshit and Jellybeans” urged us to shout and rebel; Germaine Greer’s visit escalated women’s liberation. Do we jump to conclusions all of us were liberated or are we haunted by our past? 2017, what do we tell our younger selves now?
Choreographer Susan Jordan in collaboration with dancers (Auckland, NZ)
Independent Dance Company SeniorsDANCE Company
SeniorsDANCE Company: a community dance group directed and choreographed by Susan Jordan. Performers are in their 70’s and without serious dance training as youngsters. We do a couple of projects a year – Poppy Dance performed for ANZAC Day; BookEnds performed in libraries for IDOP; most recently Bike Ballet performed in Aotea Square for NZ Dance Week. Jumping to Conclusions is the first work to be performed on a stage. Susan Jordan has had an extensive career as a choreographer in earlier years and has only recently returned to her first love of dance making after too long in arts management.
