“With eyes turned inward, we walk into the past”
‘I call you dance’ is a week of dance performances, workshops and discussions with Adriana Jamisse, CAN Creative (Nathan Bartman and Ciara Baldwin) and Ché Adams running from the 24th to the 30th of September 2018 at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective. It is curated by Julia de Rosenwerth and invites conversation around dance as a modality for self-exploration and integration. Looking to the past, each participating artist works with or is influenced by historically established music and dance traditions that inform their practice and shape their understandings of why they dance and how they dance. ‘I call you dance’ is a place to witness and engage with the artists on their practices, influences and inspirations, with an openness to spark more conversation around the roles folk-dance knowledge systems have in contemporary artistic work.
