Did you know... 

Chiara is interested in cosmochemistry, particularly the origin of planets and how they can have an effect on life on earth. 

 

“The best advice I can give to an aspiring dancer is to enjoy the journey and try not to get caught up in being over critical about yourself.”

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
