Two Fold Journey


Jingili Water Gardens

May 19, 2000

An exciting project that brought together young dancers and emerging choreographers. Conceived by Sri Lankan born dancer Rukshana Ramachandran, the issues raised are firmly based in the reality of her own ever-unfolding journey.

For many of Darwin’s young people there are two folds to their own journey. The complexities of growing up in Darwin creates its own twists and turns. If you or your family come from another place, especially another culture, an entirely different set of happenings enfolds you. TWO FOLD JOURNEY explores points of meeting and divergence.
