Where will we be with choreographic practice when our bodies start to become even more technologised? If we all become $6 million dollar women/men, what happens to the rooms we perform in when one is able to jump higher, move faster, respond quicker? What happens to a famous dance solo when oneís body is augmented through such new technologies?
This workshop comes out of the developing project Teaching a New Dog Old Tricks that explores the ongoing evolution of the body and the current state of augmentation and transformation by new technologies. It will investigate the performativity of new human/machine relations and the emotional/physical states that are inherent within such new forms.
Critical Path is pleased to introduce Paul Gazzola as the 2012/13 Associate Artist. Paul will be working at Critical Path in two research blocks and will facilitate a workshop, The Dancing Body of the Future and present a lecture Questioning Contemporary Performance Spaces in Australia within those periods. Paulís interdisciplinary practice operates at the interface of art, architecture, performance and theory incorporating a multiplicity of strategies in the production of performances, choreographies, exhibitions, curated events and video/multi-media installations for stages, galleries and site-specific settings.
