Cazna talks about the residency:
I would like to work on the second development of my current dance project, 'Colourfeel' (working title). The time used would be to investigate further into the concept of colour and the psychological affect on humans. Amongst the dancers involved in my project, there would be new phrases/ideas created from the research. Constructing these new phrases/ideas together and revisiting movement and ideas from the first development.
