TALKING BODIES 2022 | Performance-Lecture by Jasmin Sheppard

Get underneath the skin of dance in this performance-lecture series.

Discover the inside story on the evocative and often daring ways dance artists use the body to challenge the way we see the world.

Combining storytelling with movement and imagery, Talking Bodies traces connections between real-life experience, the big topics of our time and artistic practice.

Featuring Eliam Royalness and Jasmin Sheppard, Talking Bodies 2022 invites artists to consider their practice and ideas within the context of the Gallery. Presented alongside Blacktown Arts’ Giraru Galing Ganhagirri, Myths & Legends, Water Woman exhibition, Eliam reflects on queer and cultural lineages of dance practice, while Jasmin explores connections to Country and the passing of time in dialogue with NURA at Cement Fondu.

 

Talking Bodies is curated by Rhiannon Newton and Katy Green Loughrey.
