Bright Young Things

Art is the only way to travel without leaving home.” Twyla Tharp’s quote rings truer than ever, as we negotiate our various states of isolation. For dancers, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant training at home, taking part in online classes, and interacting with dance fans via social media. For the foreseeable future, the performing arts are confined to the digital realm.

Rewind a few months, when we were shooting for the second edition of Fjord Review #2, we were mindful of a new wave of dance talent. Bright Young Things, directed and filmed by Karolina Kuras, features ten up-and-coming dancers in a fashion collaboration with VSP Consignment. What I find inspiring about this project is the sense of innovation and creative drive, relevant now to the future not only of dance, but our society as a whole.

Many thanks to everyone who came together to create this film, including dancers Genevieve Penn Nabity, Jason Ferro, Tene Ward, Tom Leprohon, Godwin Merano, Lucy Elliott, Shale Wagman, Hannah Galway, Siphe November, and Arielle Miralles. Hair and make up by Ashley Readings, music by Naladog, choreography by Nicholas Rose, and backstage photography by Ethan Watts. Film concept and creation by Karolina Kuras. For the exclusive photoshoot, pick up a copy of Fjord Review #2 below.

Dancing for Peace

Love will always win, absolutely, over war and everything else” says dancer Marta Kaliandruk keenly, her pure blue eyes sparkling as she speaks to me in the wings of the theatre, during dress rehearsal for the Grand Kyiv Ballet’s Australian and New Zealand tour.
