In August and September of 2013 three esteemed choreographers will collaborate with dancers with and without disability to break new ground in integrated dance. The climax is Second Skin, a studio showing at Bangarra Dance Theatre, where dancers will shed their layers and expose what’s underneath their skin.

15 September 2013, Bangarra Dance Theatre
 
Catalyst Masterclasses are led by choreographers Sue Healey, Dean Walsh and Philip Channells and provide professional development for dancers from throughout Australia.

Adelaide-based dancer Matt Shilcock is one of the performers, he’s been dancing since 2010 and dances both in and out of a wheelchair. Matt has osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as ‘brittle bone disease’, and rather than take six weeks off every time he breaks a bone prefers to keep on performing using his wheelchair.
 
This is Matt’s second year as a perfomer in Second Skin and he explains “It is worth my while coming from South Australia to network with other integrated dance professionals and to take part in an inspiring creative process.”
 
Second Skin and the Catalyst Dance Masterclass Series has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, the ANZ Staff Foundation, Bangarra Dance Theate and Ausdance NSW.
