Leading on from a research process initiated by De Quincey Co in 2006, Peter Fraser & Tess de Quincey have conducted this year’s Impro-Exchange lab. These labs are designed to explore the nature of improvisation between dancers from different backgrounds, ages and traditions. The aim is to generate a forum for dialogue, exchange and discussion around strategies and processes of improvisation.

More than one hundred and fifty artists have engaged in this process since inception, and a pooling of thirty dancers who regularly participate has developed over the last twelve years. This lab is attended by dancers from around the country as well as from NSW. The build-up of shared experience that emerges is a major objective of the labs.
