Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

The Bill #7 brings dancer Emily Bowman into duet with sound artist/musician Moses Carr, and dancer/choreographers Rosalind Crisp & Antony Hamilton gatecrash with their duet practice, for this festive session of low-fi improvised performance.

The Bill extends the improvised performance realm through the sensibilities of Contact Improvisation.

A monthly platform curated by Two for Now (Emily Bowman and Joey Lehrer) and dedicated to dance improvisation performance where moments of high exposure and fleeting visibility are caught in the flow of spontaneous production. At each event, an established guest or group is invited to perform in a double bill alongside Two for Now, for a duration of up to 30 minutes each, followed by an Artist Chat.

Two for Now:

Emily Bowman and Joey Lehrer are an improvisational duo [ two for now ]. They have been dancing, researching, teaching, performing and documenting their Contact Improvisation (CI) collaborations together, for the past decade. Between them, they have collectively over three decades worth of CI experience.

Their practice has been supported by various prestigious national grants as well as residencies for performance research such as Tasdance (2017), Bundanon Trust (2018), Strut dance SEED (2018), Dancehouse Artist Cut (2019) and Dancehouse’s Emerging Choreographers Program (2021). In 2022, they presented their first full-length collaborative improvisational work titled Weathering as part of Dancehouse’s Season Two program.

As individuals, Emily and Joey have taught and performed CI extensively across Australia, as well as around the world (New Zealand, Malaysia, Germany, United States, Canada, India, Japan). They are respected practitioners of the CI form and key contributors to the Australian CI community. Emily is currently undertaking practice-led research (PhD) at Deakin University, which involves researching and performing CI with Joey.
