About On The Cusp
The basis of On the Cusp is about bringing a freedom to the creators, choreographers artists and collaborators in their creative process as well as introducing this to the general public.
Creating an environment for independent dance that is free of political restraints and giving back this freedom with its responsibility to the creators in order to move the art form and work forward, and in doing so opening exchange to new audiences through the performance itself as the dialogue.
On the Cusp began in 2013 at Bangarra Dance Studio and has taken place each year since in Bondi Pavillion Theatre, Eternity Playhouse and Critical Path all in Sydney Australia.
This year it was intended to take On the Cusp afar. We are excited to have so much content now to be able to share far and wide and hope to show our connectedness to humanity through dance and art in this time of COVID 19 when our travel is limited.
YET OUR YEARNING TO BE CONNECTED STILL VERY STRONG.
The self expression of the artist, based on a creative urge, has many different aspects. The actual work resulting from this creative urge is a human document of the character of the artist and their reaction towards the problems of his/her time.
Nevertheless, as the artist Desiderius Orban said, "the creative artist does not live in an ivory tower, on the contrary, they are very sensitive, reacting to every happening around them like a seismograph. This forces us to realise that the personality of the artist is moulded partly by his character, partly by the time he lives in; his reaction towards the social, economic and political problems will become evident in his work, but – and this is the crucial point – not necessarily through his or her subject matter."
Today this struggle still exists with our inner and outer worlds as does the struggle with how to bring these together to go forward as creators and live.
With On the Cusp, we are choosing to have artist’s support each other, providing the freedom in which creativity can flourish and in doing so also find new public interest in the work through the diversity and creativity this freedom mirrors of our worlds.
Feel moved by Art in Motion and be moved by your presence and joy to celebrate and co-create.
