The Seesaw Lounge is a virtual foyer for conversations with artists, industry leaders and friends. In the Winter season editors Rosalind Appleby and Nina Levy invited Seesaw Friends to join them for three Zoom conversations with movers and shakers from WA’s arts community, all from the comfort and COVID-safety of our own homes.
The first episode of the Seesaw Lounge was recorded with West Australian Ballet’s Artistic Director Aurelien Scannella on Wednesday 24 June 2020.
Nina Levy’s chat with Aurelien Scannella offers fascinating insights into the artistic machinations of the West Australian Ballet as they invite audiences back into the studio for the first time since COVID restrictions were announced. The conversation ranges from bringing work to the stage amidst pandemic restrictions, to the process of spotting and developing talented dancers… and everything in between.
