Lucy Marinkovich - dancing with Parkinson's

From Standing Room Only, 1:31 pm on 30 May 2021

Dancer and choreographer Lucy Marinkovich is helping people living with Parkinson's disease to dance, in what she hopes will become a pilot programme.

Lucy has two Dunedin/Ōtepoti-based residencies this year.  This project's being worked on as part of her Caroline Plummer Fellowship in Community Dance.  She's also the current Caselberg Trust Creative Connections Artist in Residence which has seen her working with students at a local primary school. 

Lucy is usually based in Wellington where she's the Artistic Director of the Borderline Arts Ensemble.

Lynn Freeman spoke with Lucy at the Caselberg Residence and Brasch Studio in Broad Bay.
