Core Artistic Team
“We” are sisters and co-founders Colleen Snell and Noelle Hamlyn. We began collaborating 25 years ago, inspired by stories of frogs in our back yard. Although we continue to draw from our local context we are now inspired by places we have lived and stories we have heard from all over the world. These include The Banff Centre, LADMMI, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, London Contemporary Dance School (UK), Shiseikan Budojo (Tokyo)
and Barefoot College (Tanzania).
With dance at the forefront, we blend disciplines, treasuring the interaction between space, place and the possibilities of narrative. We seek to blur boundaries that separate art forms, artists, audiences and communities; we collaborate with others who have similar aspirations. Our company members have trained with Gaga Movement (Israel), Jacob’s Pillow, Third Rail (NYC), Peggy Baker Dance Projects, and ProArteDanza. Like us, they are committed to listening for stories and working in community context.
