Ulterior Moves – Workshop Series 1

Hosted by QUT Dance Society

The Ulterior Moves Series aims to share, experiment and unleash new theories and processes of dance and choreographic practice. QUT post-graduate alumni are invited to share their research through in-studio workshops, paired with an informal networking session aiming to disseminate through the body and mind.

In Semester 1 2017 we will present two workshops with leading artist researchers Dr Clare Dyson and QUT 2016 Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award recipient Dr Jeremy Neideck.

Workshop 1 - Creating meaning through visual metaphor and movement with Dr Clare Dyson
Sat 3rd June at 10am-12pm followed by a chat over coffee
This workshop will focus on how we create meaning through visual metaphor and movement. It will look at how metaphor is made and understood within a performative environment and how shifts in and within the body can change those meanings. Participants are invited to bring a single object (or series of the same object) to look at how this might be explored performativity and how meaning is constructed in a dance environment.

Workshop 2 - I-You-We: Relational approaches to performance creation with Dr Jeremy Neideck
Sat 10th June at 10am-12pm followed by a chat over coffee
The integration of mind and body is a fundamental task for any performer, especially as western performance traditions have historically treated them as separate entities. The collective nature of performance necessitates strategies for the negotiation of relationships that acknowledge the body’s consciousness. Drawing on his practice-led research in the construction of transculturally collaborative performance making environments, Jeremy will lead participants in an exploration of psychophysical performance training and share tools for weaving the fabric of an ensemble and harnessing the intimacy of the performer-audience relationship. Participants in this workshop will employ simple, meaningful reflective practice techniques in order to explore the role of interpersonal relationships on the compositional process.
