Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច

Take the raw, wild energy of a b*by battle, add skilful contemporary choreography and improvisation expertly performed by dancers from two different worlds, throw in a good dose of humour and you get Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច.

This project is the result of a four-year dance exchange run by Darwin-based ACCOMPLICE. The exchange, between Darwin’s D*City Rockers and Cambodia’s Tiny Toones youth program, has seen the two crews travelling, training, battling and performing together across both countries.

Holly reflected on her Residency in Off the Leash magazine

“I felt and feel connected to this studio of artists through our shared language of clay, a language that they speak deftly, and with an expressiveness that delighted and inspired me.”

#noburnnotaste Residency Audio Introduction

Chef Sam -- an outspoken, gregarious, tattooed livewire -- is the BBQ dude, blasting kickass flavours into meats, fish, and vegetables seasoned with Asian spices and chillis. He cooks by fire over charcoal; his portions #Pigout; his motto #SpiceisNaise; his war cry #NoBurnNoTaste.

Jamie creates and performs works using the making and eating of food as a catalyst for storytelling. Given Darwin’s love of eating together and enjoying a yarn, collaborating with Jamie was a match made in heaven. She created a series of workshops and community dinners, before developing a program of market tour lunches and indulgent dinners, as part of Darwin Festival. The work invited people to become lost in the stories the food conjured, while also significantly shifting the role of artist and audience, into collaborators.

Matthew undertook a two week residency at ACCOMPLICE in September 2018 working between Mayfair Gallery and the Darwin Botanical Garden.

Matthew Day is interested in the potential of choreography to imagine unorthodox relationships and propose new ways of being human. Utilizing a minimalist approach, Day works with duration and repetition, approaching the body as a site of infinite potential and choreography as a field of energetic intensity and exchange.
