Movement of Place is the subject of the 2019 Kevin Taylor Legacy program, awarded to choreographer Amrita Hepi and landscape architect Claire Winsor.
Amrita Hepi is an award winning first nations Choreographer and Dancer from Bundjulung (AUS) and Ngapuhi (NZ) territories. She has worked with leading Australian dance companies Force Majeure, Marrugeku and OCHRES and toured work nationally and internationally through theatres and galleries in Australia, Europe and the USA. She trained at NAISDA and Alvin Ailey Dance theatre New York. In 2018 she was the recipient of the people’s choice award for the Keir Choreographic Award and was also named one of Forbes Asia’s 30 under 30. An artist with a broad global reach and following, Amrita combines her interest in advocacy for first nations sovereignty with a compelling and diverse physical practice.
Claire Winsor is a Melbourne-based landscape architect. Her passion for dance and movement is linked to her interest in the personal experience of space and time through design.
Movement of Place will culminate in a video installation to be shown at TCL’s Adelaide and Melbourne studios in late 2019.
