Care Tactics is a workshop series led by guest artists who will each consider the act of care and what it means for them.
This series will see guest artists explore the concepts of caring for the body, caring for practice, for the art form, for self and others, caring for the spaces and places we live and dance in. A one day workshop for people to encounter each other and the practice and ideas of outstanding local artists.
Care Tactics is curated by Temperance Hall's Artistic Associate, Luke George. Find out more about Luke's 2021 program of workshops, screenings, talks and artistic development HERE.
En Route: The Care Edition
Joel Bray makes work using a movement and improvisation methodology he and Bernadette Lewis, his art-wife, have called En Route, because it's a journey that will never end. The practice uses very specific tasks, textures, trajectories and timings to conjure a state. (Oh yeah, and Joel loves alliteration!). Responding to the provocation of Care Tactics, in En Route: The Care Edition Joel will roll out these improvisation strategies with a focus on care for self and for the other bodies in the space. It will be a grand and messy experiment; this workshop is open to dancers, art-makers and creatives of all genres, with a particular interest in dance and improvisation practice.
Saturday 13 March, 10am - 6pm (including lunch break)
$20 financial hardship (limited availability)
