PRESENTATION 2: ALISON PLEVEY – MOVING WITHIN THE ANTHROPOCENE – 2020
SESSION 1: SITE SPECIFIC WORK
Galari/Lachlan Site specific work/performance/physicality as a mode to create Q&A
SESSION 2: CROSS-DISCIPLINARY WORK
Big Little Histories, SB film, 3PLY solo + collaborative multi arts performance.
Alison’s sessions will give some practical and theoretical insights into her processes working as a dancer and choreographer interacting with place. Examining some of her solo, group and community based performance projects stimulated/developed and presented in site, she invites contemplation of how site responsive and embodied practices can enable deepened awareness of the Anthropocene for both artist and audience.
PRESENTATION 3: STEVEN CAVANAGH – ANTHROPOGENIC VISION AND RESPONSE – 2020
SESSION 1: LIGHT SENSITIVE ACTS
Just breathe and let go. This one-hour workshop will explore the act of mark making in photography. Light sensitive materials are used to explore emotional responses to photography and the world. Documentation is now negotiable. We will explore photography as a way of creating new language that is visceral and in the moment. Don’t show me what it looks like… show me what it feels like.
SESSION 2: INVISIBLE IMAGES
This one-hour workshop will look at the ways in which Steven uses photography to explore environmental, social and cultural issues. Chance and failure are welcome companions to success. Art practice as a tool for knowledge and understanding in the Anthropocene.
