a one day workshop led by guest artists:
aDAM lINDER (LA based) and bROOKE sTAMP
Esteemed international creative and LA based choreographer and dancer Adam Linder and Melbourne based dancer, choreographer and educator Brooke Stamp, will lead a one day workshop at Temperance Hall. The two performing artists have worked together on several projects including Some Cleaning at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in 2018 and Linder’s recent MoMA commission Shelf Life in 2020.
Animals and Hustlers are two embodiments that were developed for two different works. They are what Linder would refer to as ‘ambient’ physicalities that are inhabited over longer durations and demand that the performer is in control of making real-time compositional choices to determine how these physicalities unfold. Stamp and Linder will share the context, fictional thinking and bodily knowledge for these specific embodiments and together we will setup a performative situation in which they are at play.
Sunday 18 April, 11am - 4pm (including lunch break)
