Watched "The Proposition" again last night. The soundtrack by Nick Cave inspired one of my favorite quartets created on four extraordinary dancers back in 2010! Loved creating this piece on these amazing women...

Gave critique to the graduating students at Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School last week. The old Carlsberg Brewery was an inspiring context - sad to see the facilities close to dance come August 2017!

Walter Kadiki is a master of weaving signed poetry and visual vernacular into poetic performance. He is known for his profound and engaging signed poetry and storytelling that bridges cultures and is accessible to deaf and hearing audiences. He has delivered workshops for young people across Australia in Deaf Slam Poetry, has worked with community groups to create the poems such as Butterfly Hands which was performed at Federation Square in Melbourne, and in Geelong. Walter has performed his signed poetry at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, ACMI and various events across Australia.
"I started composing deaf poetry at a very young age with the influence of family members who were also into poetry. Poetry was a special channel for expressing my innermost feelings without the strain of being misunderstood. My earliest poems were mostly about the frustrations of living in the hearing world, of being misunderstood, underestimated and frowned upon. The poem tones changed with each phase of my upbringing. That is, poems of sorrow, and then self-condemning, and then of dreams that were far beyond my reach, and then love and so on."
