Unique Selling Point
Claire Marshall is a powerful force in Queensland contemporary dance choreography both on the stage and the screen. She’s worked with Darren Hayes, Kate Miller-Heidke, Megan Washington, Little Birdie, The Sleepy Jackson, John Butler Trio, Powderfinger and Tycho Brahe. Claire has recently premiered her dance genre film, "Ward of State" in Brisbane and conversations are ongoing to present the film nationally and internationally. Claire is an inspiration to young women in particular and this work has a unique appeal for them. The set design, by Frances Hannaway, and stage design by Claire are a fascinating playground for the dancers.
This work has a suite of highly appealing images and an edited promo for use in social media, online platforms and foyer displays.
Madeleine Frame is a 'character' created by Claire Marshall specifically to help with social media marketing. Madeleine is a mannequin used for twitter/Instagram moments to promote the show, and in doing so, to make further commentary on the images of young women in social media.
Teachers notes will be available - this work has strong appeal particularly for upper high school dance students.
The creative team are highly motivated to work with communities to run workshops, master classes and general classes. Conversations with presenters will be required to best ascertain the needs of each community. Working in with local dance schools is also an option. The team is also very keen to do further creative development and rehearsal on the piece as a Company in Residence in regional Queensland - to allow for more opportunities to engage locally.
