ASCENT completes first stage
New hybrid dance/circus project ASCENT completed its first stage of development last week with a full house attending the work in progress showing at The Chapel Space in North Perth.
Creator/performer Isha Sharvani has been working with Steamworks director Sally Richardson alongside a team of wonderful collaborators to develop her first solo project. Composer Tao Mott joined the showing from India where he has been contributing digitally to the project online. Designer Matt McVeigh helped to create a fantastic atmosphere for the performance, with Dev Issaro playing live flute and Daksha Seth sharing with the audience some of the details around her development of the section Sacred Geometry.
The team have plans to continue progressing the development of this engaging hybrid work, and feedback from those who attended was both warm and positive.
