Simone's Boudoir with Alexandra Harrison
03 Jul 2012
The third Simone's Boudoir will take a plunge this time into crystal balls and other future-telling devices in order to read patterns of what's coming.
We are inviting Alexandra Harrison's crew to explore what wanting to know the future produces and what kind of attention knowing the future can bring to the present? Our guests will be people who have made a profession of predicting the future (meteorologists, clairvoyants) and archivists who look at the future by analysing the past.
So if you can't sleep at night because you wonder about what's next, this is the place to find some answers...or more questions...
The guest speakers for this Simone's Boudoir are:
Alexandra Harrison: dancer, choreographer, currently studying anthropology at La Trobe University
Professor Paul Carter: Director of Deakin Creative and Deputy Director of the Centre for Memory, Imagination and Invention (CMII) - deakin.edu.au
Peter Fraser: performer and, for most of his working life, librarian
Fiona Bryant: performer, choreographer. Her latest piece presented in the Next Wave Festival was inspired by recent and ongoing disaster and a study of an alternative better world to be found at the edge of the earth - nextwave.org.au
Che Biggs: Research Officer in Distributed Systems and Climate Adaptation at Victorian Eco Innovation Lab (VEIL). Che's work focuses on the development of strategies and tools that build society's resilience to long-term sustainability challenges, in particular the need for new provision systems that strengthen community capacity to adapt to resource scarcity and climate change while enhancing, rather than degrading natural capital - www.ecoinnovationlab.com
The conversation will be facilitated by Dr Adam Broinowski, Research Fellow in Modern Japanese History and Aesthetics at Alfred Deakin Research Institute. Adam Broinowski is a writer, researcher and performance maker based in Melbourne. He is currently a Research Fellow at the Alfred Deakin Research Institute and lecturer at the University of Melbourne. For more information, Click here.
