Facilitated by Dalisa Pigram and Rachael Swain

Marrugeku’s co-artistic directors – choreographer and dancer Dalisa Pigram and director and dramaturg Rachael Swain will lead a workshop for dancers, movers and choreographers. The workshop will introduce Marrugeku’s devising approaches drawing on personal and cultural backgrounds to create contemporary movement. We will experiment with techniques to layer and structure movement, ideas, characters and cultural influences. Participants should have two to three years of experience in one or more of dance, circus, street dance, traditional or contemporary Indigenous dance, martial arts or other movement based practices. The workshop is also open to actors with some movement experience interested in improvisational movement processes to generate theatre.

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.
