Situate is a residency supported by City Renewal Authority and Canberra’s iconic You Are Here
In August, The Party will undertake a week long residency in the Canberra CBD supported by a commission from You Are Here Festival and City Grants. In 2018 the festival is taking a hiatus from its usual festival format to investigate alternate modes of engagement with artists and audiences. We are stoked to be invited to test, experiment and push the boundaries here.
We are interested to dig into the practice and process of site dance making. ie. How can we truly draw from, not impose on, site to amplify its spirit and engage its audiences? What performance is already there? What themes underlie its essence? A process of witness, receiving, responding and revealing this place to it self through movement.
