Frances Rings was a guest speaker at the AgIdeas International Design Week 2011. She is a dancer and choreographer for Bangarra Dance Theatre. There is an infusion of ideas and political issues through the abstracted form of the dancer and stage to the audience through the elements of stage design (set, lighting, and costume). Every object on the stage has symbolic meaning and used as a metaphor.
I love Bangarra Dance Theatre for their depth of meaning, innovative performance, and amazingly fluid choreography.
