It's Fashion Revolution Week! Raising awareness of the origin of our clothes, one garment at a time πŸ‘—πŸ‘šπŸ‘Ÿ Take a look at the labels on your clothes and ask that company "who made my clothes?" Behind every garment is a story. It's up to us to make sure that those stories are about happy people in fair working conditions, by educating ourselves then choosing consciously. Voting with our dollar. It's quite simple: without our consumption, the fashion labels engaging in sweatshop labour and other malpractice, will be held accountable and need to change their practice to keep operating. Every small step (i.e. every purchase) counts to enact this change!

One way of being an ethical consumer is to choose vintage! Ethical on many fronts, not least for the planet (did you know that, after the oil industry, the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world? Then also consider the clothes we throw out into landfill ... πŸ˜–) I'm wearing an all-vintage outfit here: Mum's old top from the 70s, vintage Levi 501s, second-hand vegan biker boots from @etsy, and a faux fur jacket of course! β€’

These flowers were so damn bright that they made my iPhone camera freak out, but I'm liking the psychedelic effect πŸŒΈβœ¨β€’

Especially after working with @melahhnee on #ReMake, it was so great to see her new work #WonderWomen here in Berlin πŸ’ͺπŸ’₯ in this piece, Mel worked with two professional female bodybuilders to explore a new movement language stemming from the physicality of their sport, when presented in a theatre context. Really fascinating and touching, to see these seemingly formidable bodies and the fierce beings who inhabit them, bare themselves as vulnerable women. In Re-make, Mel was interested in working with my highly trained classical ballerina body to explore new dimensions and new physical languages, and in doing so she managed to reveal that beneath the facade of an untouchable, disciplined and ethereal ballerina, there is a human, a woman, with all the same vulnerabilities as others. I am such a fan of Mel's explorations and feel honoured to have been involved in one of those journeys! πŸŽΈβœ¨β€’

Leaving the East program behind us (what a beautiful and exciting evening of dance to be a part of), but thankfully only leaving Requiem behind for another week before we take it to Bruges. Never want it to end ... βœ¨πŸ™β€’

I hereby pledge my eternal love for me-time in a quiet, dimly lit studio, finding new ways to approach the structure of a ballet barre ❀️ having woken up feeling like a scrunched up ball, today's was about expanding the spine and drawing diagonal lines of energy through and beyond the body β†–οΈβ†—οΈβ†˜οΈβ†™

Two years ago today: my final performance, as Giselle, with The Australian Ballet on the Sydney Opera House stage. Oh dear reader, if you were to know the sensation, as ultimate clarity dawned on me at that very moment as we took our front-of-house curtain call; I knew this was it. It was time. After months and years of limbo-ing, somersaulting, headfirst-diving thoughts and notions, preoccupations and tangled messes of emotions. This was the calm inhalation of breath before the exertion and release of the final big leap. Two years. So much has happened. Both me and my Albrecht here, @jaredrainfordwright, are in Europe. He's just debuted as Onegin @nationaleoperaballet (and I couldn't be prouder). I'm here @balletflanders, learning, learning. Growing. This career, in my mind, is defined by daring, from the practice and process of the dance to the choices you make to expand those possibilities to do so. If (yes, if) I ever stop dancing, I guess I can always know that I took those risks. I dared. I hope that I'll have the confidence one day to say that I'm totally proud of what I've achieved, too, but for now, I'm still in a process of growing to love myself (like we artists all are, I think. We are so self-critical). A wise teacher who was formative in my years at The Australian Ballet School, Michaela Kirkaldie, told me once, when I was already in my senior years at AB, that it's okay, amidst the constant striving for more and more, to just look back, stand proud, and rest on the proverbial laurels, above what I have achieved so far. I'm still learning how to do that. When I look back on this photo in twenty years' time, I wonder if I'd be thinking and writing the same thing? β€’

More lovely news from the Australian Dance Awards (see previous post for the other news): our video work Letting Blood has been nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Dance on Film. ✨Congratulations to our modest but whole little team (@tiagobrissos, James Wright and @jamesvodonoghue), and thank you to @dark_mofo @monamuseum and the Australia Council for the Arts for making the film possible. But special shout-out to my partners in crime @nicholasrobertthayer and @gabrielleavriladamidis. Who would've thunk that this beautiful germ of an idea, that arose from such difficult circumstance, could eventuate in this honour?
There's a lesson or two here: Put yourself out there. Follow your heart bravely. Keep making art. πŸ™β€’

Super lovely news: @melahhnee's Re-make has been nominated for 3 Australian Dance Awards: Outstanding Achievement in Choreography (Melanie Lane), Outstanding Performance by a Company (@chunkymove) and Outstanding Performance by a Female Dancer (me). Congratulations Mel, and big thanks also to you and Chunky Move for the killer opportunity. After 14 years of dancing for Australian audiences (12.5 of those at The Australian Ballet) I feel touched and honoured to be recognised in this way. Thanks Australia ... you're allllright ❀️‒
