Patrick Lucky Lartey

Facets 2015 International Choreographic Residency

The 2015 FACETS program provided me with unparalleled levels of support from 10 international mentors spanning a number of artistic areas in the development of Long Walk to show as part of the Attakkalari India Biennial 2015. I also had the opportunity to work alongside another nine artists from around the world who inspired me and showed me different ways of working and dancing.

Critical Path’s 2015 FACETS resident is Patrick Lucky Lartey. Lucky will use his FACETS residency to further develop an eight minute solo he created in 2014, embodying the speeches of Nelson Mandela in order to explore the trajectory of oppression/resistance to freedom/liberation in a postcolonial context. Lucky will draw on both traditional West African and Afro-contemporary dance forms in the development of this work, and will explore the shared legacies of India and Africa as postcolonial democracies. Lucky’s new work will be presented at Attakkalari India Biennial’s Platform 15 – a showcase to present the work of emerging choreographers from the South Asian region.

Originally from Ghana, Lucky Lartey is one of Australia’s most dynamic West African performers and is well known for his versatile and high-energy dance style. His work as a choreographer draws on his cultural heritage and the dances of West Africa.
