Join Ausdance QLD and Antony Hamilton, Artistic Director of CHUNKY MOVE for this two day intensive.
workshop will introduce participants to improvisational and
choreographic approaches that Antony has developed as tools, games and
systems for creative exploration. These approaches encourage creative
thinking around the intrinsic value of movement practice, and knowledge
that resides in the body. They can be used to develop choreographic
ideas, or simply to help engage physical and mindful attentiveness as an
end in itself. The workshop will also explore how Antony’s cross
disciplinary practice has reframed his view of the body, it’s capacity
for learning, and it’s role in shaping our physical surroundings.
