SeeMe19 - 22 September
Choreographers will be activating under-utilised areas of The Courtyard, taking inspiration from the architecture and spaces, including the pond, stairwells, balconies and corridors.
The program will activate the space for two 30 minute slots from 5:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. The schedule is designed to catch audiences before they head to their MoveMe festival shows and after the shows finish.
The performers are intergenerational, ranging from the young members of Co3 Youth, in a work choreographed by Tyrone Robinson, to the experienced elders of Momentum Dance, in a work created for them by Talitha Maslin, and some exceptional independent dance artists in-between – Storm Helmore, Marnie Orr, Joshua Pether and Sete Tele.
Audiences will experience an intriguing selection of contemporary, site-specific dance works.
The inclusion of SeeMe as part of the larger mainstream dance festival allows audiences to experience the evocative art form of dance in an extremely intimate and unconventional way. The program offers a really unique viewing experience. SeeMe gives audiences permission to come and go as they would in an outdoor gallery setting.
Don’t miss out on your chance to follow the SeeMe path to the
MoveMe Festival at the State Theatre Centre of WA.
