Description

About the Making Space Series

Making Space is the latest public program from the Sydney Environment Institute, and this time, we’ve added a twist. This off-campus series partners with 107 Projects to ask what happens when performers, artists and academics approach the act of ‘making space’ hand in hand.

Subject

‘Bodies, Space and the Anthropocene’ built on the 2019 Sydney Festival event ‘Talking Dance: Hacking the Anthropocene’ by Critical Path and Strange Attractor. This event prefaced a week long workshop which brought together choreographers and specialists from other disciplines, that asked artists and academics to respond to the idea of the Anthropocene. We pick up this conversation again, this time including the choreographers to reflect on the process of making work in artist-non-artist collaborations and ways of thinking-through-practice in the Anthropocene.

The Speakers

Astrida Neimanis is a feminist writer, researcher, and teacher based at the University of Sydney.
Bek Conroy is an artist, critical thinker and writer.
Sarah Pini is a choreographer, anthropologist and PhD candidate.
Jodie McNeilly-Renaudie is an independent choreographer, researcher and dance dramaturg.
