"It is because science grows out of the preoccupations and pressures of everyday life
that its discoveries have, in the end, to be accessible to all of us."

Animal behaviours inspire dance
Conversation with artist Lynden Nicholls.

As humans we get trapped in boxing things and putting grid patterns over things.

I was the dance specialist at the Melbourne Zoo for fifteen years, have performed on trapezes in California, as a roast chicken at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, performed as a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo with Dance Works, amongst Rodin sculptures at the National Gallery, with Theatre of the Ordinary in many improvised productions and festivals. My teaching has included two decades of lecturing at the University of Melbourne at both the undergraduate and post graduate levels and at both the TAFE and Higher Education divisions of the Arts Academy of the University of Ballarat.

Presently I am interested in collaborating with others in performance projects. I was part of the Creswick contribution to Regional Arts Victoria's Illuminated By Fire project in 2011 and am the choreographer for a Steam Punk performance project with Ken Evans and Rebecca Russell in 2012.

My extensive background in and passion for movement has led me on to my current absorption in photography.
