“Jade Dewi Tyas Tunggal glowed with infectious energy, moving with nonchalant ease and exuding pleasure and sensuality from every pore – her strong technique a mere vehicle for her expressive power.” Margaret Jolley, Dance Australia Magazine, April/May 2007


Morning Star - Weereewa Morning Star - Weereewa

During winter 2012 I travelled to Yirrkala with Mirramu Dance Company to begin in the creation of The Morning Star, with Aboriginal artists, Albert David, Banula Marika, Nakulma, Dkjakapurra and Janet Munyarryun.

This dance life adventure changed my understandings of reality and took me to heaven on earth (Widdiyana). I was adopted by the Marika Family and given the name Murukun (Morning Glory flower). My moiety is Dua, my skin name is Galien and my clan is Rindatjingu.

Mirror Image Mirror Image

Nature is like a mirror that reflects our people and land.

Mirror Image was concieved of and created in the natural Australian landscapes of Mirramu Creative Arts Centre and premiered at the ANU Theatre in Canberra. The core idea for the co-choreography between the creatives of Mirramu, Dancecology and DPAC Dance Companies is to find reflection from Nature to humankind.

Dancecology’s works combine performance and visual art to break the restrictions of stage and present the unique atmosphere of environmental theatre based on the ecological concepts 'circulation' and 'symbiosis'.

Disappearance Disappearance

Inspired by the vastness of Weereewa (Lake George), the mysteriousness of its atmosphere and personality, with its changing moods and colours, the dancers from Mirramu Dance Company in collaboration with Jyh Shyong Wong (DPAC Dance Company, Malaysia) and Dancecology (Taiwan) created this work to celebrate the Lake's powerful presence and influence. The audience are invited to enjoy the experience of being on the lakebed during the special 'golden hour' time of the day and become transported into other worlds.

Performance - Elizabeth Cameron Dalman, Jyh Shyong Wong, Hsiao-yin Peng, Yi-ching Chen, Fu-rong Chen, Jade Dewi Tyas Tunggal, Janine Proost, Ruby Dolman
