Nice interview. I'm glad to hear Murphy is adamant about being fresh with his choreography.

Here is our own interview of Murphy: "Excuse Me I'm Not A Sausage Machine," an interview by criticaldance.com correspondent, Jennifer Leake.

And here is a previous thread on Sydney Dance Company: Sydney Dance Company Tours US

Three of Melbourne's highly esteemed artists - Dame Margaret Scott in dance, Ronald Farren-Price in the field of music and Michael Kantor in theatre - have been mentors. The process, they agree, is priceless.

Looking squarely at the enemy - age

By SHARON VERGHIS
The Sydney Morning Herald

For more than six months, on and off, Graeme Murphy lived a life muffled by three layers of insulation. The Tasmanian bush, dead winter and deepest isolation, the elements that shaped his sabbatical away from the Sydney Dance Company, were amazingly restorative, he says - "something extraordinary happened there, [Janet Vernon] and I both felt reconnected to the land".

This week, however, he seemed like a man relieved to be back in the driving seat, darting from finalising contract negotiations with his 18 dancers to laying down the bones of a new work.

Thanks for this, kurinuku. I am looking forward to the company's return to the SF Bay Area in March.

Murphy's Grand tribute

By JO ROBERTS
The Age
July 04, 2005

An "email work" - that's what Sydney Dance Company artistic director Graeme Murphy has dubbed his latest creation, Grand, which opened at the Sydney Opera House on June 1. The work has been so well received, says Murphy, that people "go straight home and email" about it.

I went to Sydney for Graeme's farewell gala. I filmed many interviews (including Graeme, Janet, ex-Prime Minister Paul Keating and others) and rehearsals. Now I am trying to make a documentary on Graeme. Anyone interested in this project? thanks, jeff
