Amanda Phillips is currently in Taiwan working with Cloudgate2 as the first Australian to be invited to the Young Choreographers Workshop in Taipei. OzArts Online wrote about her and the International Dance Conference where her work will be premiered on July 30.

Amanda Phillip is one of four Asia-Pacific young choreographers who will present a new work at the commencement of the 2004 International Dance Conference, hosted by Taiwan’s Cloudgate Dance Theatre’s second company Cloudgate2.

Phillips, from South Australia, was selected from a national field of choreographers and then from a further pool of applicants from the Asia-Pacific region by an international panel formed by the World Dance Alliance.

Already an internationally recognised award winning young choreographer, Phillips’ latest achievement, in uncertain times for independent dancers and choreographers in Australia, confirms the significantly real value and impact individual Australian dance artists are making on the international arena.

All four choreographers will work with Taiwan’s internationally renowned Cloudgate Dance Theatre’s second company Cloudgate2, which is hosting the event.
