Project details

Client: Shermaine Heng
Date: 2016

 

Shermaine Heng’s return to Ballarat in 2016 to work with multicultural youth became a performance called What They Said.

I was invited by her to photograph the show, held at the GPlace, Golden Point, Ballarat

In Shermaine’s own words:

“My initial vision for this work was to explore the
concept of multiculturalism with young dancers.
However, as the workshops progressed, it quickly
became so much more than that. What started
out as a direct exploration grew into a showcase
of culture, coupled with the joy and fervor of youth.”
