Imagine a world… 

In our fourth episode of Imagineers in Isolation, we are delighted to be talking to the magnificent experienced dancer and choreographer Melissa Lanham. She has over 25 years of experience in the dance and theatre industry. Over Melissa's career, she has worked in the UK and here in Australia as an independent artist. Her work has been described by critics and reviewers as ‘beautiful, fluid and potent movement’; ‘A gift for story-telling, masterful, impressive and relevant’. She is closely associated with dance education and currently working with professional dance touring works and dance. Let’s hear from Melissa, artistic director of LJ Project Dance, as she shares her story through this inspirational chat with us.

While the Imagineers Festival may have been postponed to next year by COVID-19, we at Imagineers always believe in the light at the end of the tunnel. And the silver lining has taken the form of Imagineers in Isolation. Imagineers in Isolation provide the joy, imagination, and entertainment of the festival to the people in isolation,  allowing us to indulge in our creative spirits. After all, this is the true essence of Imagineers.

Please excuse the glitches, echos, and audio levels from recording on Zoom. Unfortunately, there were some internet drops and interruptions during this week’s interview. Also, please note that this was recorded while we were under stricter restrictions at the end of April.
