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.

Takashi Takiguchi and Emily Bennett (duet), Kevin Jeynes (Solo) and Lynne Santos (Solo), each present a 20 minute improvised performance based on movement, sound and vocalisation and responsive to content, space and audience. Improvisation, as a performance art form, is based on a well developed sense of presence, attention to detail and an ability to craft an overall piece on the go. Join them for an hour of emergent, enlivening performance art making.

Lynne Santos has been a member of various companies including One Extra Dance Company, Theatre Of The Ordinary, Born In A Taxi, Actors Furniture Group and Teatro del IRAA. Her ongoing practice is now largely concerned with improvised performance.

Originally from Japan, Takashi Takiguchi is a Melbourne-based dancer, performer and a creative producer.  Since he started his artistic career at the age of 38 in 2013, he has performed and produced  numerous festivals here in Australia and abroad.  He has been mentored, working and collaborating with three distinctive established artists – Tony Yap, Yumi Umiumare and Agung Gunawan for years.

Emily Bennet is a vocalist, sound artist, collaborator and educator.  Her work spans over band widths and pop bands.  She is a misconstruer of works and misinterpreter of words.  She leads experimental electronic group, Great rack and an empty club reverb, and can be seen around town with the the most fabulous looking frown.

Kevin Jeynes is an improvisational performer whose explorations are fuelled by an interest in entwining movement, vocal sound and text, and in navigating the Pleasing Plains of cohesion  and the Slippery Slopes of fragmentation.
