Finding Centre

Renowned Tasmanian dancer Trisha Dunn explores the notion of ‘finding centre’ in a deeply personal work that launched her solo career. Trisha’s performance is an insightful and widely pertinent exploration of balance – physical, mental and spiritual and questions what it means to find a sense of centre, contentment and peace. As a new mother of twins she found herself juggling a life of conflicting and competing demands and confronts this universal struggle with strength, humor and honesty.

Finding Centre experiments with the intersection between live performance and projected images in collaboration with Kaboom studios placing the work in a vast visual surround.

There aren’t enough words to describe Trisha Dunn’s choreography and performance in Finding Centre.  We need a new vocabulary, something that hasn’t been invented yet, to translate.  Exceptional.  Inimitable.  Exquisite….”
