    Choreographed by Anton
    Production Design: Sheridan Elphick
    Lighting: Karen Kristensen
    Sound Design: Walter Maguire
    Production Manager: Edwin Chee

    ‘Capacity’ is inspired by overpopulation, human sprawl and crowed living environments, the work will explore a dense physical dance landscape that takes 18 dancers and compresses them into a small space. As space becomes more and more compressed, the dancers become forced together into a human tapestry that engulfs it’s participants into one community where individuals appear and disappear in the search for personal identity.

    Cast: Brandon Welch, Georgia Pisconeri, Hemavathi Sivanesan, Jack Ziesing, Jeanine Lui, Jenni Large, Jessica Press, Kirsty Richards, Olivia Fyfe, Rebecca Frasca, Rebecca Taylor, Roy Berkin, Ruth Louise, Sophia Ndaba

    “Thank you to Nanette Hassell and all at WAAPA for the opportunity to create this work and a special thank you to all the dancers for their tireless work.” - Anton

  2. Produced Collider

    Director Don Cameron

    This looks extremely simple but in order to make this look effortless it took co-ordinating almost 30 people in every shot. Under each model there were 7 dancers to help support and lift the model and 20 dancers held and moved the cards.

    It was a great experience in nailing timing and co-ordination.

  3. Produced Nickelodeon Australia

    Creative Director Kristie Phelan

    This Channel ID was shot in Sydney in January 2011.

    I was employed to do the movement direction and choreography for this shoot.

    In order to get these shots which where all done live, we had a vigorous audition and rehearsal period for the kids.

    There was also training for four people to throw buckets of slime at the kids from 3 metres away from on top of high scaffolds.

    Over 50 still cameras were used to create a single frame and the moving images were shot the Phantom HD.

    The shoot day was intense as we only had one take at each jump.

    I love seeing the joy on the kids faces, they were such a great bunch.

    'The Blur' takes a global view of Australians and Australia as a part of a fast moving, digitally connected international community. The Blur commissioned by Tasdance in 2009 explores screens, urban existence and space; it has a restless energy that then explodes into high octane physicality.

  5. SUPERMODERN - Dance of Distraction

    Choreographer/Director Anton

    Producer - Michelle Silby

    Dancers - Kristina Chan, Timothy Ohl, Robbie Curtis and Sofie Bourgyne.

    Music - Nick Wales in Collaboration with Jai Pyne

    Lighting - Guy Harding

    Design/Costume - Julio Himede

    Supermodern- Dance of Distraction is an accessible contemporary dance work that aims to connect with the audience through exciting dance that has been motivated from a solid dramaturgical point view and that highlights the experience of what it is to live in today’s society. The dance delves into the physical psyche of what it is to be human in our modern world.

    Fast paced highly skilled dance is embodied by an accessible collage of physical characters that are at times are caught between themselves and the gadgetry, technology and rapid change of today’s age. The dance highlights bodies compressed by walls, shuffled behind screens, fascinated by the glimmer of little shiny objects and forever caught between two places at once. The work delivers this central theme through the dance, a throw away sense of humour and a modern pop inspired score, and asks the audience to experience in a theatrical manner situations of their own everyday lives.
