Six for Gold


Six for Gold is a re-imagined and heavily compressed history of three dancers' journey through the ranks of 80's TV show Solid Gold. It appropriates the many clichéd notions of the dance world: obsession, competition, sacrifice and the quest for fame.

Commissioned for Tasdance and created as part of the One for Sorrow, Two for Joy season

press quotes

“...the work has a fragmented, pacey feel - wonderfully apt given its pop culture context. Beneath the posing, melodrama and wild rock and roll soundtrack, were three technically strong, gutsy dancers who captured the work’s sardonic flavour.”
Jessica Thomson, DANCE AUSTRALIA 2008

“...outrageously hilarious”
Ashley Syne, REAL TIME 2008
