NORPA INFORM RESEARCH-LAB #4 WITH Lee-Anne Litton AND Alejandro Rolandi

INFORM is a 2 year program partnership between NORPA and Critical Path which aims to explore and extend dance theatre practice in the Northern Rivers region, NSW.

The program creates a space for opening up ideas and broadening skills at the intersection of dance and theatre making. A series of 4 workshop-labs over two years will consider how dance and choreography can underpin an embodied approach to theatre and provide different methodologies for performance making.

INFORM #4 will see Strings Attached performance making duo Lee-Anne Litton and Alejandro Rolandi begin a conversation with the folk of the Northern Rivers about:

  • Exploring the complex relationship between individual, place and collective, the pair will use their innovative methodology – combining aerial, dance and physical theatre – to unite the local community participants to generate a physical response to the site (buildings’ exteriors).
  • Working in the open-air and public space, to democratise the creative process and nurture, in these globally challenging times, connection at a personal, local and global level.
