Full Circle is an original idea and concept developed by Lucky Lartey (in collaboration with the dancer) to explore the historical significance of storytelling and African oral traditions via contemporary dance practices. The original choreography and dance work are inspired by Lucky's understanding of the significance of African oral traditions and their connection to hip hop culture and rap music. The work investigate key themes of finding one's voice as an artist, how historical cultural process are transformed across space and time and how to find a place to expresses one's cultural identity in contemporary Australia using the long standing relationship between hip hop culture and African oral traditions as a point of departure.
