Development Program


Adhocracy Residency Program 2018

Vitalstatistix is now seeking expressions of interest from South Australian artists for their annual Adhocracy residency program (a partnership with Critical Path), working with Emily Johnson on her new work Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter.

Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter is a new process-based work in development by artist Emily Johnson and her global collaborators. The project is about ways of being and ways of making. It is research and process as ceremony. It is dance. It is writing about dance. It will be shared as dance, text and public gathering at Adhocracy.

Vitalstatistix is also seeking proposals from artists for their own Adhocracy project.

Applications for both projects are now closed.

Emily Johnson is a First Nations artist from USA. Originally from Alaska and of Yup’ik descent, she is currently based in New York City where she is director of dance company Catalyst. A Guggenheim Fellow and Bessie award winning choreographer, she creates work that considers the experience of sensing and seeing performance. Her dances function as installations, engaging audiences within and through a space and environment, interacting with a place’s architecture, history, and role in community. Emily’s four-part work SHORE was presented at Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival in Melbourne, 2017.
