Making solo work is an intimate process. It takes me deep into myself and into a keen relationship with my practice and what inspires and generates that. I have been creating ‘terra’ over several years due to Covid and also the necessity to stay with something for a long time to realise the work and feel satisfied.
In this workshop I will share some of my ways of working: the somatic practice that has kept me dancing for decades; the philosophy embodied in my dancing; a keen attunement to our lived world with its complex and acute environmental and social changes; the influence of place on our embodiment and imagination; the refining and distilling of these elements to create work.
We will be ‘moving underneath’ so bring an object that covers at least part of your body, for example: newspaper, blanket, netting, sheet, coat or large piece of clothing.
The workshop is an opportunity to share my research with other dance artists, performers and choreographers in Western Australia. Between us I hope to generate questions.
Practice Sharing is an arena to enter into artistic dialogue, an opportunity to share skills, a space for physical thinking, and a way to engage in different creative practices.
Facilitated by established local dance artists and visiting guest artists, the sessions are presented in an open, workshop-style format that may move between dancing, writing, choreographic research and discussion.
