Development Program

CHOREOGRAPHIC HACK LAB

Collaboration with Strange Attractor

Critical Path and Strange Attractor in partnership with Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences present CHOREOGRAPHIC HACK LAB, a one-week laboratory that brings together city-based practitioners to look at and be informed by new synthesis between the disciplines.

We invite 5 artists with a choreographic practice to creatively improvise with 5 practitioners from other disciplines engaging with the Anthropocene. This experimental space provides the opportunity for finding creative solutions and new ways of working across practice boundaries.

Alongside the lab there will be a series of public activities – talks, presentations and an accessible publication to open up the process and content of the laboratory to the public and extend the reach of the public program activities.

Facilitated by BeK Conroy with participatants Ivey Wawn & Riki Scanlan, Dean Walsh & Dr Glenn Albrecht, Jodie McNeilly-Renaudie & Clare Cooper, Henrietta Baird & Vicki Van Hout, Clarence Slockee, Bruce Pascoe,  Jody Orcher and Auntie Francis Bodkin, Sarah Pini & Jestin George.

A sharing of ideas and explorations from the lab participants, co-presented by Critical Path and Sydney Festival, will take place 3pm 28 January 2019 at Kings Cinema at MAAS (Powerhouse Museum). Attendance is free and registrations are open: https://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/events/talking-dance-critical-hacking
