Dirty Feet Choreographic Lab


Expressions of Interest are now open for DirtyFeet's August and September Labs with choreographers Ashlee Barton and Emma Harrison at ReadyMade Rehearsal Space, Ultimo, Sydney. Applications deadline is 5pm, Monday 17 July.

Ashlee Barton's lab runs from 14-25 August, 10am - 5pm Mon - Fri (*Tues 12 - 5pm) (5 dancers)

Description: "Using an improvisation practice as its foundation, this lab will explore the body as a site or place to call home. The dancing will manifest as a kind of dancing which belongs to the individual, but also that which transpires through the group. This will arise through a dual focus on the dancers being both movers and watchers throughout the work, shifting their attention between their own bodies, and the bodies around them."

Emma Harrison's lab runs from 18-29 September, 10am - 5pm Mon, Thurs, Fri; Tues 12 - 7pm; Wed 10am - 3pm
(8 - 10 dancers)

Description: "Through choreographic research and improvisation, we will deconstruct the millennial’s narcissistic desire to make an impact; on the world, on each other, on ourselves. The lab will develop a conversation between dance, theatre and moving image that attempts to create and dismantle the uncomfortable meandering on the perpetual search for fulfilment in our bodies and in the space."
