BODY AND ENVIRONMENT


Come on a unique physical journey that explores our relationship to spaces, how we move through them and the effects they have in shaping our everyday lives and imaginative worlds.

Led by eleven young performers aged 14 – 18 from Bega Valley, you will be guided through a transforming installation of 64 interconnected shirts that create a variety of changing spaces from architectural structures to natural environments.

Workshop Available for Schools
Along with the performance, the workshop allows your students to further explore and play with ideas around healthy attitudes towards physical activity, body image and self-belief using dance, interactivity and design.

From the Program Coordinator…

This will be unlike anything your students have ever seen before. These brilliant young performers use their bodies and a moveable sculpture made of old shirts to tell stories of the different worlds that surround us. Your students will be enthralled and entranced by this unique immersive experience. Great for visual literacy, exploring dramatic movement, Dance as an Artform, and the concept of 4D work in Visual Arts.


Available Extras

Along with the performance, the workshop allows your students to further explore and play with ideas around healthy attitudes towards physical activity, body image and self-belief using dance, interactivity and design.
