OUR COMMUNITY --
Kayah is a 23 year old man who lives with his family in Murwillumbah.
Dance is his passion. It gives him a form of expression that transcends verbal communication.
Kayah was one of the soloist in Yes, We Dance commissioned by Bleach* Festival as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Originally the rules of casting for Yes, We Dance was to seek non-dancers, who loved to dance, but Kayah was a perfect reason to break the rules. He does dance professionally as an emerging artist however in terms of everyday people expressing themselves through dance, you would not find a more honest and emotive mover then Kayah. He brings his soul forward through his dance in a way that is deeply moving.
We interviewed Kayah and his mum Leanne about the impact of being involved in the project.
he says --
“I enjoyed the group, great teachers who made me feel great, felt an amazing life. I made new friends and felt support. The band made me rock it and feel in my body power.
Being a part of the show has made me feel more like a man, believe in myself and concentrate. I felt inside me; happy, glad, responsible, mature.”
