Tim Newth AM

Tim Newth AM, originally trained as a visual artist, is now a director who works in dance, theatre, and community cultural development. Tim developed his skills and interest through his work with companies such as Tasdance and Dance Works, where he honed his ability to unite the visual with the physical. It is in this ability to meld many forms that Tim finds the vehicle for making his own artistic statements, comments that unite and inspire people. Tim has been working in the Northern Territory since 1988. His work originates from the interconnectedness of people, place and art. Tim has a love of space and placing movement and visual imagery within. He is well known for creating large-scale outdoor site specific performances, that borrow from local landscapes and their cultural histories. Tim Artistically Co-Directs Tracks Dance with David McMicken.
