Angela Goh & Ivey Wawn
10 – 21 December 2018, Tanzhaus, Zurich
Angela Goh & Ivey Wawn will be travelling to Switzerland in December to participate in a two week residency at Tanzhaus Zurich as part of the Swiss-Australian Exchange program in partnership with Dancehouse, Melbourne.
Angela Goh is an Australian dancer and choreographer. She is working with dance in theatres, galleries, and telepathetic spaces. Her work often deals with tropes of femininity; the supernatural; and dance as both a form and as a force. Angela’s works have been presented in a multitude of formats across Australia, Europe, the UK, USA and SouthEast Asia.
Ivey Wawn makes dance-based work for a range of contexts. Drawing poetics from economic and microbial processes, with a focus on the politics of exchange and transmission, she develops choreographic blueprints that result in complex systems of transformation for the human scale. Ivey’s research interests include microbial symbiosis, mourning processes, care as radical politics and financial crisis.
Dancehouse and Critical Path have identified and cemented an inspiring network of like-minded partner organisations across Switzerland. These partnerships will provide Australian independent dance artists with a multiplicity of opportunities including the chance to expose their work to international audiences, to identify potential new markets for their work and to create cross-cultural and transnational creative networks. It will also provide the Australian dance artists and audiences with access to the innovations, ideas and opportunities dance is engaging with in the international context.
The artists will present their work at a public sharing on the 14 December at 6pm.
