Excitement is building for the 2017 season. As preparations are underway for another season of contemporary dance, Founder Jane Pirani reflects on what inspires her when planning a season of dance.
"I have created performances for many years and over the time I have found there is no set formula, at least there isn't for me" offered Jane.
"I draw inspiration from many sources. Sometimes it's a photo, sometimes a painting, but often it's an event, story or experience that will spark an idea" she added.
"The idea then builds and develops over time. As I work with a group of dancers, their energy will fuel the process, as will my surroundings" Jane commented.
"I absolutely love the process. It's different every time. I find it exciting, fulfilling and challenging all at once!"
Jane Pirani is the Founder and Artistic Director of Ulysses Dancers. A not-for-profit contemporary dance company based in Townsville, Australia.
