Kinaesthesia Intensive

A miniature intensive exploring massive choreographic scores, Kinaesthesia Is an intensive for the dance maker looking to dissect their choreographic practice and find new impetus.Taking the body through a journey of experimentation, Kinaesthesia explores the dialogue between choreographic scores and improvisation, anatomy and kinesiology.

Kinaesthesia aims to activate the mind and find unorthodox ways to devise movement. The intensive features three disciplines of thought from independent artists Victoria Hunt, Melanie Lane and BalletLab Artistic Director, Phillip Adams.

Please note: Kinaesthesia is for professional dancers or dance students in their last year of tertiary dance training.

Vanishing Point by Shian Law

Tue 14 - Sat 18 March

“…the issue this time is to indicate the precise point in the present to which my historical construction will orient itself, as to its vanishing point.” — Walter Benjamin

Both hybrid performance project and two-year experiment, Vanishing Pointexplores the ambiguity of authorship and the possibility of preservation in performance art. Dancer Shian Law (Jo Lloyd, BalletLab, Lz Dunn, Lara Thoms) employs a range of (un)orthodox strategies including documentary, archiving, fabrication and outright theft, to pose the question: “Whose show is this?”

In the work, Law – a trans-media artist and compulsive experimentalist – takes a quasi-archivist approach, documenting and historicising his bodily encounter with three choreographic works by dance luminaries Phillip Adams, Deanne Butterworth and Jo Lloyd. A team comprising documentary makers and a portrait painter then record the elapsing time as Law locates, excavates and performs the dance works.

Vanishing Point playfully and stealthily maps the constellation of lineage, questions of authenticity, and the multiple folds that frame a portrait of a contemporary artist.
