Workshop. Fieldwork Choreographic Workshop Series
Join choreographer and dancer Julia Harvie for a choreographic workshop series that will engage the body as the lens through which we can explore Peter Robinson's Fieldwork. We will investigate how the body can be composed in relation to Peter's sculptures and how we can use his work as a code to navigate the space and generate movement gestures. The first session will be about familiarising ourselves with Peter's work and learning scores Julia has designed for the space. The second session will be the opportunity to take these scores and work to develop your own material with a section of the exhibition.
Julia graduated from UNITEC in 2003 with a BPSA in Contemporary Dance. Julia’s work is driven by multi-disciplinary collaborations and improvisation. Her work has toured throughout New Zealand and has been presented in Taiwan, Singapore and Australia. Julia's work in recent years has ranged from performance installation, such as Nesticity for FESTA, real time composition such as Harmonix, Democratic Ensemble, Ōtautahi Automatic at CoCA and avant garde opera, Xenakis' Oresteia with UC for the Christchurch Arts Festival. As the artistic director of Movement Art Practice she works to create platforms for artists and the public to demystify and democratise how we see, talk and engage with dance as an arts practice.
It is expected that participants will attend both workshops, but a single ticket option is available.
