Late Night Library: Talking Bodies – The Fondue Set

When

Thursday 5 March from 8pm to 9pm

Building on last year’s Talking Bodies series, this year’s unique dance lecture performances focuses on the theme of "dancing monuments", tracing the diverse, uncanny and counter-culture narratives that make up the story of dance in Australia today.

Over 3 nights, join Sydney’s finest dance artists, The Fondue Set, Angela Goh and Latai Taumoepeau. Combining storytelling with performance, video and re-enactment, each artist presents a playlist of the great influences, practices and issues that have shaped their work. From internet memes and ceremonial dance protocols to climate change, eisteddfods and feminist manifestos these influences are far reaching.

The artists reveal how thoroughly dance is mixed up in the issues. Big, small, social and personal, these issues shape who we are and how we make sense of our world today.

The first event in the series features acclaimed Sydney collaborative dance trio The Fondue Set, Emma Saunders, Elizabeth Ryan and Jane McKernan. Over the last 15 years, The Fondue Set have made works that consistently push the boundaries of dance as a genre. Their works utilise humour, audience engagement and highlight the mistakes and the in-betweens of movement, while developing a distinct dance language towards an awkward body.

For Dancing Monuments, The Fondue Set takes the audience on a journey through the numerous influences on their work. They’ll re-enact material from their repertoire and speculate about the great works still to come.

Late Night Library:Talking Bodies Dancing Monuments is produced by the City of Sydney, presented with co-curators Rhiannon Newton and Katy Green Loughrey, and March Dance Festival.
