QL2 Chaos Project "All the Things"

16 October 2015

The “Chaos” project for 2015 called “All the Things” from the aspiring and exuberant dancers of the QL 2 dance school was the kind of chaos that is inspirational and exciting as well as a display of the enthusiasm Artistic Director Ruth Osborne engenders in her dance school team. They are fit, young and disciplined with a view to the future whether in the acclaimed Quantum Leap dance ensemble or extending their opportunities nationally and internationally.

With 44 dancers and contributions from the current Quantum Leapers and young choreographers their influence demonstrated forward thinking in their art and ability. Who’d have thought an Apple Mac with apples as props could be such a clever melding of the modern into dance, or that social issues could be dealt with so well by these young performers.

The “Chaos” project has been an annual event for 15 years in the Gorman House courtyard and bringing it onstage at Theatre 3 takes it to another level, invites a wider audience and furthers the reputation of this company of dancers.

And for the young dancers let me tell you a story of a night at the Q Theatre in Queanbeyan when your brilliant Artistic Director Ruth Osborne caught up with three of her former students, Jack Ziesing, Benjamin Chapman and Daryl Brandwood, appearing in the Expressions Dance Company’s Carmen Sweet. They’d want me to tell you about the respect they have for her and the love of dance that came from her example and teaching. “All the Things”, bringing all the things they’ve learnt so far onto the stage and into the future.
