Over the next ten days 16th - 23rd May we will be reflecting on the adventures of our exchange and collaboration as we seed new knowledge and approaches for site dance creation and begin the development of a new work 'a-bridging-place'. We are hungry to meet in the flesh and to experience process in place together and to allow for inputs from our residency consultants Uncle John Graham, Daniele Constance and Glenn Barry to feed our journey. We hope you will follow them here...

11 May a-bridging-place

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]In a new collaboration, Australian Dance Party and Gogi Dance Collective (Gold Coast) exchange, merge and re-assemble site dance making approaches and ethics through the seeding of a new work ‘a-bridging-place’ set on the HOTA ‘Green’ Bridge. With provocation from Daniele Constance, Glenn Barry and Uncle John Graham and the artists centre their creative consciousness to first nations histories and audience access opportunities. The bridge is a metaphor for the research focus of the residency AND the subject of the new work, where site dance approaches merge from different directions and expand to new awareness. We curiously unpack the patterns, psychologies and choreographies of the bridge as a space between two ends or beginnings and places of suspended transition. a-bridging-place is made possible through a Blue Sky Dreaming residency at Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance as part of The Makers Program. This project has been supported by Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance through The Makers Program – a commissioning project assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body; the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland; the Regional Arts Development Fund which is a partnership between the Queensland Government and City of Gold Coast to support...

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text] IMMERSE: contemporary dance labs are series of labs led by a practicing professional contemporary dance artist each with a focus on a particular physical and creative inquiry. Immerse enables an environment for professional dance artists to explore, test and discover, to connect and network, and to explode new ways of working/moving. The aim is to dig a little deeper into a process or approach over a three week period, working with a consistent group, extending the creative curiosities and physical development of movers and makers in the ACT. Immerse is usually delivered in three-week blocks (3 x 90min sessions across three weeks, with the exception of some full day sessions) Thursdays 7pm - 8:30pm in the QL2 Theatre at Gorman Arts Centre. *Participants must commit to the full three week block.
