Responsive Residency: The Small, the Minute, the Minuscule

The Small, the Minute, the Minuscule: finding the dance in non-dance

Lisa Maris McDonell with collaborator Robina Beard will explore and investigate the use of very small (yet not intentionally gestural) movement within a dance context. Having previously choreographed and danced works which required athletic technique and extreme physicality, Lisa is aiming to address this imbalance by taking time to explore movement that requires a little less of the super human and slightly more of the human.

Lisa Maris McDonell has a multi-faceted dance practice which includes choreography, performance, dance education, dance therapy and flamenco. Based in Wollongong NSW, she currently works as a solo artist creating collaborative performance works and interactive dance experiences in a variety of settings.
