Talking Bodies returns with a one-off event, featuring 2 cutting-edge Sydney choreographers, Amrita Hepi and Brooke Stamp.
In this bespoke series of lecture performances, we get the inside story on the evocative and often daring ways dance artists use the body to challenge they way we see the world. Combining storytelling with movement and images, this series traces connections between real-life stories, the big topics of our time and dance.
In this special double-bill edition, Amrita Hepi reflects on her practice, questioning how identity, duality and the dilemma of authenticity manifest in her works. Amrita is a choreographer and dancer from Bundjulung and Ngapuhi territories working across theatre, gallery and video contexts.
While Brooke Stamp, a celebrated Australian performer and choreographer, provides insights into her significant body of work for theatre and museum spaces. Brooke is a choreographer, teacher and researcher whose creative practice is uniquely positioned at the intersection of movement, improvisation, sound, installation and text.
