The workings of the choreographer’s mind are revealed in a bespoke series of ‘dance lecture’ events.
Featuring 3 of Sydney’s most celebrated dance and performance artists, Julie-Anne Long, Bhenji Ra and Ivey Wawn, we get the inside story on the evocative and often daring ways these artists use the body to challenge the 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 – climate change, the female body and social co-operation – and dance.
Award winning Sydney dance artist/scholar, Julie-Anne Long, reflects on the role of identity, the female body, the everyday and place within her significant body of work, revealing how choreographic thinking might help us to make sense of the times we live in. Julie-Anne is a dancer, choreographer, director, producer, curator, mentor and educator working within the diverse context of Australian contemporary performance.
Late Night Library: Talking Bodies is produced by the City of Sydney, presented in collaboration with co-curators Rhiannon Newton and Katy Green Loughrey, in conjunction with Critical Path’s March Dance Festival.
This event will be Auslan interpreted.
