TANK 2

IMAGE • DANCE • THINK

A laboratory-symposium led by
FRANK VAN DE VEN & TESS DE QUINCEY

30 NOVEMBER 2014
3 – 6pm
Rex Cramphorn Studio – 
The University of Sydney

Following from the highly successful 2012 and 2013 events Frank and Tess will continue to share and explore the legacy of images that were an integral part of their BodyWeather training and performances within Min Tanaka’s MAI-JUKU performance group in Japan from 1984 until 1991. In addition, a new Image flow will be developed that reflects current cultural and scientific developments and interests.

Dancers, artists, artist-academics and academics are invited to participate in a six-day process that consists of a 6-day laboratory followed by a public symposium. They will further explore a new format for an interdisciplinary exchange between practitioners and writers in order to enhance the amalgamation of theory and practice research of images within the moving body.

The final day opens out the process to audiences in a symposium with a focus on the nature and function of ‘images’ and their embodiment from a BodyWeather perspective. Besides exploring the use of imagery across different cultures, this public event will include the demonstration of laboratory and image techniques as well as the construction and articulation of images from an ancestral and cross-cultural perspective with contributions from a number of independent BodyWeather dancers.

This performance is free of charge.
