HI-IN-VIS / Making the unseen seen

Dance artist Luke George, who has been making and performing across the globe in places such as New York, Norway, the Netherlands and Sydney, is back in Melbourne and teaching a workshop for professional performance artists who are practicing in dance, performance/live-art and theatre.

For this workshop Luke is interested in exploring how we experience the unseen things in our bodies, in ourselves, that transmit between our body and others, and how this unfolds into a practice of performing and being seen, and then how being a performer is also being a maker, and being an audience.

In this workshop we may or may not experience and explore:

mind
body
energy
sensing
touching
drawing
writing
talking
sounding
imaging
imagining
presence
presenting
'reading'
perceiving
how we see body/s
how we are seen
experiencing our performing
performing our experiencing
the choreography of performing
the transmittance of information between bodies
firing into our intuition, imagination, criticality, receptivity and our playfully ferocious creativity
a field of enquiry that is about being a person, being a body, being a performer, being a watcher, being a maker.

Dates: 3 - 4 August
Time: 4pm - 8pm
Cost: $60 Full / $50 Concession / $40 DH Member (each day)
