In 19th Century Paris you were the height of bourgeois cool if seen promenading with your pet turtle on a leash.
Life then was already being experienced as too fast paced – the turtle slowed its owner to a glacial speed.
It’s 2016 in Melbourne – you are invited to join me on a slow, silent drift through Melbourne allowing her history, sounds and scents to seep in.
Make your own dance with a tree, the wind, a grass stalk – supported by M47 dancers and the environment itself. This workshop involves individual and shared experimentation in the bush and grasslands of Royal Park. Make your own short dance that will become part of a group video, with specially composed music, shown (subject to your approval) at the M47 HUB. For non-dancers.
