Dr Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM


UNSW | 27 JUL – 9 AUG


Elizabeth will explore the dance potentials for an eighty-year old body thus extending her practice as a choreographer and performer. Always interested in the power of expressive dance she will explore what an older dancer’s body has to communicate. With guidance from actor/dramaturg Kenneth Spiteri and Jungian analyst and singer/song-writer Glenda Cloughley, she will investigate Motion . . .E-motion, MA (silence/emptiness), Memory, Image, Dreams, Space, Sound and Story.

“I will observe the tensions in and energy flows through my body particularly during various emotional states, and explore ways of translating these into dance. Using theatre-training techniques I will push the boundaries of my practice and explore more deeply the archetypal states and roles now relevant in my life.”

Dr Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM, founded Australian Dance Theatre in 1965 and was its Artistic Director to 1975. She is currently Artistic Director of Mirramu Dance Company and Director of Mirramu Creative Arts Centre.
