Steps Youth Dance Company
Movement Safari was a ground-breaking project in several ways. It saw Steps Youth Dance Company engage a youth ensemble of which 6 were paid (emerging artists who choreographed and performed) and 24 youth performers. Under the mentorship of experience professional performance makers, the six emerging artists created on the Steps youth ensemble activating corridors, rooms, foyers and main spaces at Old Customs House, Fremantle. Taking place in early 2003, this production presented six short interdisciplinary dance installation works to public audiences, sharing insights from the ‘edge’ that is youth physical and political expression.
