Stage 2 Creative Arts and Dance Pieces:

  • “Sour Love”: Sour Love is about telling a story about love gone sour. She wants her doomed relationship to heal, or to even “just last the year.”
  • “Desolate Blue”: The ocean is secretive. It is stunning but precarious. It is tranquil, but wrecking. It is crystal clear, but swallows long lost history. It adapts to natures motives and acts merciless to its holdings. The ocean holds many erratic characteristics, but to travel across the desolate sea is a choice one may make; to fulfil their hearts callings, to escape from city life, or to reach their loved ones and hold them close
  • “The Demon Is I”: Depression is not an uncommon mental illness and people who suffer with it will know that it feels like you are trapped. Like you are battling with a demon inside.
  • “Amor de otoño”: Amor de otoño is about the relationships and connections you can build with the people around you. There are times when you need independence in a relationship but also sometimes you need to be in unison. The intention of this dance is to show the bond two people can build and create and how the connections that a relationship enables are the strongest type.

I wish to thank and acknowledge all PLHS staff and the Performing Arts faculty for their continual support. I am proud of what the students have achieved in under 19 weeks. A special thanks to the following people and organisations:
