Lucy Guerin Inc is delighted to announce the news that the Company’s Artistic Director Lucy Guerin has been honoured with the 2016 Australia Council award for dance to recognise the outstanding achievements and considerable contribution of an artist in dance.
Lucy, who is currently working in Malmo, Sweden remounting her work Weather on dance company Skanes Dansteater, says of her award:
“It is truly a great thrill and an honour to be recognised in this way. It’s an important moment to reflect on all those people who have influenced and inspired me; the dancers, producers, collaborators, presenters, Board members, teachers, fellow choreographers, it’s a long list. And the amazing community of artists that I have been a part of over the last 30 years.”
The award will be presented at a ceremony next Thursday 11th March at Carriageworks in Sydney. A short excerpt of Lucy’s most recent work Motion Picture will be shown at the awards ceremony amongst performances from other honoured artists.
Congratulations from Lucy Guerin Inc to all the other artists recognised by the Australia Council in 2016 in the other award categories. You can read more about the awards and the recipients at the Australia Council website.
