Vicki Van Hout
Join Vicki Van Hout in this practice-based workshop for choreographers and dance makers. Vicki will guide participants through her own creative practice and share tools accumulated over a career spanning more than 20 years. Participants will be encouraged to push their creative boundaries by sampling new aesthetics within their practice; inverting gendered forms; merging traditional forms with the contemporary; and questioning appropriation and assumed knowledge.
Choose between two workshops (same content, different times): a two-part evening workshop, or an all-day workshop, and innovate your own choreographic processes with one of Australia’s leading independent artists.
Vicki Van Hout is a Wiradjuri woman born on the south coast of NSW. An independent choreographer, performance-maker and teacher, Vicki has toured nationally and internationally, more recently with her critically acclaimed solo Plenty Serious Talk Talk. A graduate of NAISDA and the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance in New York, Vicki was awarded the 2014 NSW Dance Fellowship – the first Indigenous winner of the Fellowship – and the 2019 Australia Council Award for Dance.
