Life In Movement

Dancer/choreographer Tanja Liedtke was on the brink of artistic stardom. Her work was acclaimed across the world culminating in her appointment as the new Artistic Director of Sydney Dance Company, only the second director in its 30-year history. But before officially taking up the position she was struck and killed by a truck during a midnight walk. The dance world had lost Tanja’s voice before she had told her full story. Tanja’s short life gives an inspiring insight into living creatively. As her work tours internationally, her collaborators reveal their memories and process their grief over her sudden death while Tanja continues to inspire through previously unseen interviews and footage of her compelling process.
