<B>Choreographer develops Tasmanian Tiger ballet in Berlin</B>
By Susan Shineberg, Berlin

The Age

The first day of the Berlin Dance Festival's week-long workshop with Melbourne choreographer Philip Adams is over. The 15 dancers who signed up for the course lie strewn around the studio floor as if machinegunned. Even Adams, the bright new star in Australia's dance firmament, looks a bit drained by the uncharacteristic warmth and humidity of Berlin's high summer, and just a little travel-worn.

The workshop is one of about 11 events in the ambitious six-month artsaustralia berlin 02 program designed to bring Australian arts to Europe. The program, funded by the Australia Council and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in conjunction with Berlin presenters, runs until December, with more than 90 Australian artists performing in major venues across the city.

Adams will present the results of his workshop to the public and press. It's a project designed to create, develop and devise ideas for the second part of his abstract trilogy that takes the extinction of the Tasmanian Tiger as its starting point. With luck it will lead to his company, BalletLab, being invited to appear in Berlin's International Dance Festival in August next year.
