Masterclass: Site-specific Dance for Ecological Change
Mon 18 – Wed 20 January 2021, Porongurup

Join Annette Carmichael and Sumer Addy in a live-in masterclass in Porongurup, four hours south of Perth.  Working within a recovering and revegetated landscape, you will be immersed in an experience of climate action and ultimately hope.  In the shadows of Koikyennuruff (Stirling Range) and Porongurup, we will examine site specific dance as a force for social and ecological change.  We will experience first hand the audacious vision of the Gondwana Link, whose goal is to develop resilient ecosystems and abundant wildlife over a 1,000 km nature corridor stretching across the State.

Accommodation provided. Participants need to organise their own travel to Porongurup. Registration fee has been waived.
Places are limited – Express your interest before Thursday 7 January 2021.

Creative Development –Distributed 15
Mon 29 November – Fri 10 December 2021, Albany

‘Distributed 15’ is a new work facilitated by Annette Carmichael Projects that will be developed over 15 threads of activity from 2020–2023.  This multi-artform, community project explores ways of distributing knowledge, action and shared responsibility for people and the natural world.  In 2023, the project culminates in a large-scale performance distributed across multiple sites and communities in regional Western Australia.   

This creative development will focus on creating and interrogating choreographic processes that are culturally and ecologically sensitive. 

Expressions of interest are especially encouraged from artists who are culturally and/or generationally diverse or have strong connections with regional communities.  This two week creative development will occur in Kinjarling (Albany) and surrounding areas.

Accommodation provided. Dancers will be paid.
Selection via EOI and interview – Express your interest before 12 February 2021.
