Since receiving a bachelor of dance degree from Melbourne’s prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in 2003, he has contributed to the work of several, mainly Melbourne-based, companies, notably Lucy Guerin Inc and Chunky Move, with which he has performed both nationally and internationally. His choreographic credits include A Little Murky, a small-scale piece that experiments with subtle characterization and showcases his powerful and theatrical style, and I’m in Love, for the Next Wave Festival in Melbourne. Serle considers the Rolex programme to have been a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” of extending himself as a dancer and choreographer under the tutelage, in 2010-2011, of such a “seminal influence” as Dance Mentor Trisha Brown. After the mentoring year, he looks forward to continuing to focus on his own choreography.
