Garry Stewart heads up NIDA Creative Forum "Choreography is Everywhere"

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Next Monday 19 May at 6.30pm you are invited to attend a conversation with NIDA Head of Movement Gavin Robins, Artistic Director Australian Dance Theatre Garry Stewart, choreographer/dancers Tess de Quincey and Martin del Amo.

Monday 19 May, 6.30pm
NIDA Parade Theatres
215 Anzac Parade, Kensington

Register to attend at: www.nida.edu.au/forum-choreography

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.

Free event. Places are limited and registration is essential.
