“Coming to Catapult I always feel welcomed and encouraged to explore my boundaries. I have full creative freedom, which is so rare. The team at Catapult have no agenda, so I can really allow my work to form organically and honestly. Furthermore, myself and my dancers know that paid contemporary dance work is few and far between in the current Australian artistic climate, so I can sense that they really approach the rehearsal process with an eagerness to create and gratefulness to the development.”

Kristina Chan Mid-Career Choreographer

As a regional composer, Catapult has given me valuable opportunities through all their programs that I would not have been granted elsewhere. These are absolutely fundamental to my development as a post tertiary composer. These experiences facilitated my creative portfolio, developed networks and further my compositional ability. As such, without the support, mentoring and encouragement of Catapult my passion for dance composition – would not have been a reality.”
