ON ART: Performance + Talk

Alison Currie & The Human Arts Movement: Creatures

Wednesday 11 July, Performance: 5.30 — 6pm, Talk: 6 7pm

When performance art is good it hums and vibrates with energy. It reaches out to the audience and brings them in. — Artlink

Creatures is an exploration of human movement and repetition. Oscillating and gradually morphing between movements, together the seven dancers shapeshift; signifying a flock, a single organism or diverse individuals. Creatures will be performed in response to A Conversation with Jheronimus.

As the dancers move among Iacobelli’s series of site-specific installations, a cross-disciplinary dialogue emerges about what it means to be human.

Stay with us directly after the performance for an in-conversation with choreographer Alison Currie, The Human Arts Movement dancers and artist Aldo Iacobelli.

Presented as part of the 2018 Panpapanpalya Dance Congress and the inaugural Adelaide Dance Festival.
