Proposing Choreographies for the Future
(In)Corporeal Encounters is a programme of free discussions hosted by VCA Dance at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, University of Melbourne, in partnership with Dancehouse, a locus for independent dance practice in Australia.
In these critical conversations we divine possibilities for future dance(r)s through an interdisciplinary weave of voices from artists, scholars and activists working in the fields of art and related disciplines. (In)Corporeal Encounters encourages speculation, provocation and creative thinking. They will be staged around the following themes:
Session One (Wednesday 13 April) — Mapping matriarchy in Ngioka Bunda-Heath’s ‘Blood Quantum’ with Rheannon Port, Ngioka Bunda-Heath and Professor Tracey Bunda
Session Two (Wednesday 27 April) — Localism and locatedness in the field of dance with Philipa Rothfield, Victoria Chiu and Caroline Bowditch
