If you have aspirations for a career in dance, costume, design, music or choreography, and are looking for inspiration, check out this incredible dance performance by second and third year dance students in the 2020 class at WAAPA.
This is why each year, thousands of students from around the world apply for WAAPA each year, and only the talented few make it through.
Inspired by Théodore Géricault’s iconic Romantic painting, The Raft of the Medusa (1818-19), the 45 minute performance has been described as, “A visceral and emotive exploration of calamity and shared humanity. Moving relentlessly, the dancers are caught in the throes of a defining moment in time.”
“A Moving Portrait” was choreographed by Raewyn Hill with the hauntingly beautiful music composed, arranged and performed by Eden Mulholland.
