THE ROLE OF THE SPECTATOR
PRESENTED BY CHUNKY MOVE & MELBOURNE FESTIVAL
A creative laboratory for experience makers of all disciplines with renowned international theatre-maker and choreographer Nicole Beutler.
This creative laboratory focuses on 'the role of the spectator' as co-creator of the narrative or reading of the work:
A versatile artist who works across multiple disciplines, including dance, theatre, puppetry and contemporary music, Nicole also has extensive experience as a curator and facilitator. Her visit to Melbourne offers a unique opportunity for makers from all disciplines to come together to reflect on their own work.
Nicole invites makers to share and sharpen aspects of their practice by making, reworking, recycling and upcycling their own, and potentially each other’s, performance material. Alongside each day of studio-based practice participants will together view performances in the Melbourne Festival in the evening, which will provide further context for the laboratory.
Dates: Tue 21- Sat 25 October, 11.30am - 6pm
Cost: $275 (includes performance tickets)
Venue: Chunky Move Studios
Applications Close: Friday 10 October
