Steps Youth Dance Company

Powdermonkey: Real Boy Real Girl was first trialled as a performance model uniting children and adults in 2002 with Felicity Bott, Leon Ewing and Setefano Tele during the large-scale youth dance incubator  in Fremantle Locomatrix for Step Youth Dance Company. The model was inspired by Romeo Castellucci and Chiara Guidi’s Experimental Theatre Schools for Children in Italy.

In 2003, schools in the Swan Region were involved in taster workshops and then  in 2004 a child and adult performance ensemble was created for the public season of Powdermonkey: Real Boy Real Girl. As part of Artrage in the Midland Town Hall, we created a spatial installation for dance/theatre with 18 children from Swan Region.
