Design for Dance Workshop

Come along to a FREE design desirelinesworkshop and Q&A session with the designers behind Desirelines, the electric new chamber ballet by choreographer Gareth Belling for Collusion, showing at Brisbane Festival 2015.

In Desirelines, musicians and dancers use gleaming stainless steel tracks to navigate a digitally animated landscape in a powerful melding of contemporary ballet and new chamber music. Desirelines are the improvised tracks created by people who defy the ways designed for them by others.

Collusion Choreographer, Gareth Belling, will lead discussions with Animation Designer, Pete Foley, and Costume Designer, Leigh Buchanan, about how they collaborated for Desirelines. The Q&A session is your chance to gain more insight into working with a professional creative team.

Pete Foley’s credits include Polytoxic’s Trade Winds, Trollop at Queensland Theatre Company, A Tribute of Sorts at La Boite Theatre and Horrendo’s Curse for Imaginary Theatre. See more:

Leigh Buchanan is Costumier at Queensland Theatre Company and Opera Queensland and recently opened his own fashion and costume business. You may also remember him as Project Runway season 1 runner up. He talks about fashion, costumes and Queensland style in this interview:
