DANCING IN HARMONY
Lucky is the lead choreographer and teacher for the Sydney-based Dancing in Harmony Project. A community development initiative of the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS), the project brings together young Africans from refugee backgrounds to train in Traditional African and Afro Contemporary dance. Lucky runs classes with young people aged 10-20 years each week in preparation for a final performance on 30 November 2012.

In addition to teaching young people, Lucky has brought together some of Sydney’s premier West African adult performers to develop Africa Unite, which will also be performed as part of the final performance in November.

It is through this project that Lucky connects with his passion for teaching young people Traditional and contemporary African dance and is excited about showcasing the talents of young African Australia’s.

MOTHER TONGUE
Mother Tongue is a vibrant kaleidoscope of dance and live music that explores war, cultural tolerance and healing, revealing shifting paradigms and new futures. This highly visual and spectacular work is a collision of dance, rhythm and vocals of Torres Strait Islands, Ghana, Polynesia, North India, flamenco and contemporary body percussion. Mother Tongue is the final work in Annalouise Paul’s highly acclaimed trilogy Conversations in Rhythm and Dance.

Lucky is one of nine performers involved in Mother Tongue.

UNIQUE AFRO
Unique Afro is Lucky’s Ghana-based group. Throughout 2010, Lucky developed a number of choreographies for Unique Afro to perform on the Ghanaian reality TV show Boogie Down (Ghana’s version of So You Think You Can Dance) as guest performers for the whole season.
