Architecture of Loss
Variations of Ease
It’s been said, things are not always how they seem. We’ve heard this phrase a million times, but how often do we actually question the façade of the happy, successful people that surround us? Would anything positive come from it if we did? Often the times in our lives that have been stressful have also been the times when friends thought our lives were at their most exciting and successful.
Variations of Ease, draws from the unpredictable nature of relationships to create a combination of anticipation and anxiety rousing the suspicion that perhaps everything isn’t what it once seemed.

Never better said
Never Better Said is an all male work created for students studying the BA in Screen & Performing Arts at Auckland Unitec in New Zealand.
The work had its premiere in Auckland in 2015 and is a fast paced, fierce work to the hard bass of Driven by Kiasmos.
"Australian choreographer Tim Podesta has focussed on “movement with clarity” in his work Never better said made on five of the graduating male dancers to the music Driven by Kiasmos. Taniora Motutere delivers on this score, demonstrating superb articulation, born of a hip-hop infused body. This work gives the dancers: Motutere, Reece Adams, Rodney Tyrell, Sione Fataua and Shane Tofaeono a chance to show their strength and directed energy in the edgy movement vocabulary that Podesta employs."

Of Mice & Men
Of Mice & Men
Choreographed and performed by Tim Podesta (Projection Dance) and Aberdeen’s favourite Andy Howitt (AusDance Victoria). This UK premiere, coming to DanceLive all the way from Australia, is inspired by the classic John Steinbeck novel, and is an accessible, artistically bold and theatrical work.
This is a tour de force performance; an achievement of narrative story-telling in dance and a celebration of mature men dancing proving that you can't keep a great dancer down.
Of Mice & Men has been performed in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Is an International Ballet Competition held in Milan, Italy.

Archè was premiered in Melbourne in 2015 - It is an innovative production that takes inspiration primarily from the age-old classic, Swan Lake. This ballet explores and embraces much of the original narrative and some of the classical repertoire. Director, Simon Hoy has structured this work around his unique choreographic style and has developed a score including music by Tchaikovsky, Einaudi, Arnalds, Morricone, Jeanrenaud and Elgar. This emotionally charged production has received very positive critical reviews and is suitable for audiences everywhere. Archè is the Greek word meaning the beginning, the principle from which all things arise - the force that explains their birth and death. The ancient Greek philosophers including Thales, Anaximander, and Anaximenes, sought the Archè in the four fundamental essences of the Earth: water, earth, air, fire; focusing on how they interact with each other. Concept and Direction by Simon Hoy, choreography by Simon Hoy and Timothy Podesta.
