Tonight I had the good fortune to attend Precipice at John Curtin College of the Arts. First up was traditional Ballet with Act 2 of Swan Lake. William Halton played a good Baron Von Rothbart while Nick Curse played a fun energetic Jester.
The highlight was after the interval when the College performed Brooke Leeder’s Mechanics of Mirroring. This was a fast paced modern piece based on illusion. The illusion of mirrors, the illusion of dance and the illusion of the illusionist. Brooke graduated from John Curtin in 1996, since then she has carved out a career in dance, if the Mechanics of Mirrors is anything to go by she will go far.
It’s so uplifting to see performances such as Precipice right here in Fremantle. Congratulations to head of Learning Area Dance, Diedre Atkinson.
