Two Fold Journey

Two Fold Journey

    Jingili Water Gardens

    May 19, 2000

    This exciting project brought together young dancers and emerging choreographers. Conceived by Sri Lankan-born dancer Rukshana Ramachandran, the issues raised are firmly based on 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 create 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.
