Perth dance director takes up Churchill Fellowship
Saturday, 19 July 2008 02:55
Artistic Director of Buzz Dance Theatre, Felicity Bott will take up a Churchill Fellowship in July this year. The seven week professional development trip will see her travel to Los Angeles, New York, London, Berlin, Barcelona, Ghent, Vienna, Paris, and Brussels.

The Churchill Fellowships are designed to offer an opportunity of a lifetime to experience the best of the world in their chosen field, and make their mark on Australian society when they return. Ms Bott was awarded the Churchill Fellowship in 2007.

Ms Bott said she was thrilled to be awarded such a prestigious award, which was established as one of Sir Winston’s last requests in 1965.

”I am committed to renewing how we in Australia view our capacity for creativity and how creativity can flourish in the communities that children and young people are a part of,” she said. “I am travelling to learn about how individuals and organizations in other countries recognize, value, and enable creativity in young people.”

The trip will see Ms Bott experience first hand the contexts in which dance theatre producers and directors in other cultures make and present their work, offering this knowledge back to the local community on her return.

Buzz Dance Theatre is Australia’s nationally awarded, premier dance theatre company for children and young people. The company’s latest production directed by Felicity Bott, Cinderella Dressed in Yella premieres at the Subiaco Arts Centre on July 8 just in time for the school holidays. Cinderella Dressed in Yella is suitable for children aged 4-12 and their families. Bookings on BOCS 9484 1133.
