Award-winning choreographer and director Garry Stewart will be sharing his ideas and research around the idea that choreography can be found in many areas outside of the world of dance – in the theatre, technology and everyday life.

Don’t miss this fascinating chance to hear from one of Australia’s most innovative creators as Garry Stewart joins NIDA Head of Movement Gavin Robins and choreographer Tess de Quincey to explore how our definition of choreography is changing and the impact of the constantly changing role of technology upon theatre and movement.

Garry Stewart is the 2014 Seaborn, Broughton and Walford Foundation Artist-in-Residence at NIDA, working with students throughout 2014 as he develops an original work to be premiered at Carriageworks in October this year.
