Emily Robinson – Port Talbot

I am fascinated as I watch my father nurturing and caring for his plants in the way in which a mother would care for her young. Feeding, watering and protecting them in a way that is often seen as the ‘motherly’ way to be. In watching him during this time of rebirth and resilience in our community and country, I wish too to be cared for; to be covered in soil, watered and given sunlight to strengthen my roots. To stay in one spot and yet still feel the high and freedom of growing and rising to the sky.
Emily will be mentored by dance artist Kimberley Harvey

Kim & Kylie will be mentored by choreographer Lea Anderson
