Dancer Jesse Scales on Interplay, the striking electro acoustic score of Raw Models and her top 5 music tracks.
What is the most interesting thing about Interplay for you?
For me, the most interesting part about Interplay is the fact that it is a triple bill. I have had the opportunity to work with three choreographers each with their own developed styles. This means three different ways to challenge myself, physically and mentally and experience three distinctive ways the choreographers create their works. It is extremely insightful for me, especially as I am still at the beginning of my career and I would like to develop further my own way of creating diverse movements. In Sydney Dance Company we are given so many opportunities and you become like an ever expanding sponge soaking it all up.
The Raw Models score has been composed by German electro acoustic duo 48nord. What is it like dancing to this kind of music?
