Stanley Stanislaus Indigenous Residency

    Text

    Darwin, Lajamanu

    July - September, 1998

    Stanley Stanislaus’ 10-week residency with Tracks Dance was part of his Aboriginal Dance Apprenticeship Professional Training through the National Aboriginal and Islander Skills Association – (now known as NAISDA Dance College). He was a local dancer of Tiwi Island descent and performed with Tracks in 4WD as part of his professional training in 1997.

    Stanley’s time with Tracks was taken on in the context of his future plan to live and work in Darwin. His placement within the company also put him in a community dance context. His time was split approximately 50/50 between company work and being a dancer in the community. Stanley was involved with the production Invisible Heroes - a collaboration between Tracks and Arafura Ensemble. He was involved in solo, duo and trio work, which included choreographic responsibilities. The company provided a supportive structure where Stanley could showcase his teaching, dancing and choreographic skills to the Darwin community and successfully established himself with several ongoing workshop commitments.

    After his residency, Stanley went on to be employed on a professional basis as part of a Lajamanu remote Aboriginal community workshop programme and performed in The Land, The Cross and The Lotus, as well as Outside the Camp.
