Martin del Amo is a Sydney-based dancer and choreographer. He is best known for his full-length solos, fusing idiosyncratic movement and intimate storytelling. Martin regularly teaches for a wide range of arts organisations and companies and has extensively worked as mentor and consultant on projects initiated by young and emerging artists. He also writes and regularly contributes to RealTime magazine. His work has toured nationally and internationally (UK, Japan, Brazil).
The Bundanon residency enabled director, Julie-Anne Long, and collaborators: Sam James; Glenn Thompson; Ekrem Eli Phoenix, to focus on film installation: ‘TROUBLE: A Place In Time’. It also provided an opportunity for Martin del Amo, Justine Shi Pearson, Rhiannon Newton and Raghav Handa to curate a public participatory performance event, Project Workspace. Both developments were part of a larger project, ‘Dance in the City’ that engages with an inclusive gathering of artists from the Sydney independent dance sector, supporting a diversity of dance work to make visible the practices of this dance community.
