The Membrane Project

With Tina Tarpgaard, Recoil Performance Group (Denmark)

Visiting artist Tina Tarpgaard offers a workshop which is part presentation, part movement workshop. It will begin with a short visual presentation of THE MEMBRANE PROJECT trilogy, and the concepts behind it.

MASS-bloom explorations, currently presented at Dancehouse 16-18 November, is the second part of THE MEMBRANE PROJECT and is a choreographic installation involving one human performer and thousands of co-performing mealworms.

Following the presentation will be a movement workshop based on the choreographic scores involved in MASS-bloom explorations and the element of performing slowness. At the end of the workshop, there is time for questions and discussions on the subject of interspecies relations and bioperformativity on stage.

Dancehouse’s From Abroad Workshops are hosted by visiting international artists who come highly recommended by your Australian peers. From Abroad Workshops are FREE for Dancehouse members.

About From Abroad Workshops >>

Recoil Performance Group is a Copenhagen-based performance group, founded in 2005 by choreographer Tina Tarpgaard. The group works with choreography and performances that cut across established aesthetic categories. Kinaesthetic interaction with the scenographic elements in which the choreography it set, has been a consistent focus of Tarpgaard’s work. In her early performances, this took the form of digital trompe-l’oeil projections, while later efforts have focused more sensorial, analogue universes where light and sound becomes concrete elements in motion.
