Featuring Julie-Anne Long, Bhenji Ra and Ivey Wawn, Talking Bodies is a unique series of lecture performances that aim to get underneath the skin of dance. Tracing connections between real-life stories, the big topics of our time and dance, this series affords new insights into the evocative and often daring ways dance artists use the body to challenge how we see the world.
The first in this series of lecture performances', award winning Sydney dance artist/scholar, Julie-Anne Long, reflects on the role of identity, the female body, the everyday and place within her significant body of work, revealing how creative thinking might help us to make sense of the times we live in. Julie-Anne is dancer, choreographer, director, producer, curator, mentor and educator working within the diverse context of Australian contemporary performance.
