An Emerging Voice

Deborah Fletcher

This video investigates how three emerging dance artists are shaping their futures through instability. As a freelancing artist, there is inherent uncertainty with a non-linear career pathway, and recently unforeseen change has become unavoidable in everyone’s lives. How are these artists curating their careers, and what does that look like?

An Emerging Voice will be shared on Tempo's Social Media Channels.

Collaborators: Yin-chi Lee, Fa’asu Afoa-Purcell, Villa Junior Lemanu
