Expressions of Interest: Queer Gestures - where is the queer body in dance, now?
Expressions of Interest is a public talk series inviting artists, guest speakers and the broader community to explore critical and urgent dialogues about art, performance, the body, dancing and what it means to gather. The series dances with the way we talk and listen to each other, centring the knowledge and wisdom of those often unheard.
This Midsumma, we will gather to witness and participate in a conversation with a panel of legendary and fearless artists, featuring Carly Sheppard (Wallangamma/Takalaka artist, dancer, choreographer), Joel Bray (Wiradjuri artist, dancer, choreographer), Kiki Dévine Oricci (Performance artist and Mother of House of Dévine), Alexander Powers (choreographer, electronic musician, DJ Female Wizard), Raina Peterson and Govind Pillai (dancers, choreographers, Karma Dance).
Curated and facilitated by Luke George (performance and visual artist, Temperance Hall Artistic Associate), the panel will extend discussions into queer embodiments, kinship and lineages shared between bodies and the queer spaces - or the queering of spaces - in which we dance.
