|Outside Looking In|
|Wednesday 15 June 2005, 11.30am-5.30pm and 6-8pm
|‘Outside Looking In’ was a day-long seminar devoted to allowing participants an inside look into the specific practices and concerns of all of the ResCen Research Associate Artists. Each artist led a workshop, discussion or presentation. In the evening Chris Bannerman presented a paper ‘Intuition and craft: an eyewitness account’ with Rosemary Lee and Graeme Miller. This was followed by further discussion and debate with all of the Research Associate Artists and the audience about key issues that had arisen throughout the day.
Session 1 12.00–1.30pm:
‘Movement twisters, knots and puzzles’ was an open rehearsal where choreographer Rosemary Lee worked with dancer Henrietta Hale to generate movement material both improvised and set from complex movement tasks.
Session 2 2.30–3.15pm:
‘Reflections’ was a workshop demonstration with choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh and dancers Rathi Govindarajoo and Navala Chaudhari in which Jeyasingh reflected on the recent vocabulary that she has created in the studio and her aspirations for what it might convey.
Session 3 3.30–5.30pm:
‘Engaging with Absence’ was a discussion and demonstration led by Richard Layzell with Research Fellow Joshua Sofaer on the role of other selves and other voices in the creative process.
