As part of SPRING DANCE festival at the Sydney Opera House, we present the first few minutes from the FREE FILM INSTALLATION - highlights of Meryl Tankard’s unique and extensive body of work. The full 30 min film screened at the Western foyer, 23 August - 4 September 2011.
"Having leapt to fame in Europe with Pina Bausch, on her return to Australia, Meryl Tankard created a dance-theatre aesthetic all of her own. Her time at Australian Dance Theatre is noteworthy for the succession of hit productions she created on a dynamic, versatile company, touring extensively to high acclaim. Tankard packs the emotional and sensual punch which epitomises her work in a nuanced, poetic, even fierce style full of choreographic invention.”
