Elizabeth has been involved with the Tsai Jui Yueh Foundation for more than 10 years. This year she was commissioned to make a work on the theme of the global refugee crisis for their 13th festival. Flight for Life – Destroyed was the result, a work dedicated to the refugees and asylum seekers on Nauru and Manus Island and around the world.
There were ten dancers from the Grace Shiau Dance Theatre in this production along with Australian performers Vivienne Rogis and Kenneth Spiteri from Mirramu Dance Company.
Five performances were presented in the TJY International Dance Festival with audiences visibly moved by the issues raised and the work itself. Sensitive and strong performances by all of the dancers created a memorable and significant dance theatre work.
