IT'S ALL ABOUT BUILDING

0

ITS ALL ABOUT BUILDINGConstruct is a sharp, rigorous and curious look at the concept of ‘building’. It starts with an empty theatre full of possibility – a space in which to construct. Effortlessly shifting between the physical act of building and the emotional construction of lives, Liedtke explores with wicked humour the curious connections between building a home, a life, a relationship, and a future.
construct was choreographer Tanja Liedtke’s final work, It was commissioned by London’s Southbank Centre and premiered there to critical acclaim in May 2007 followed by a U. K. tour; and sell out performances at the 2008 Sydney Festival.
The work won two Helpmann Awards in 2008: Best Choreography (Tanja Liedtke) and Best Male Dancer (Paul White).
In August 2007, at the age of 29, Liedtke was accidentally killed in a road accident. She had been about to take up the prestigious position of Artistic Director of Sydney Dance Company.
