Fertile Ground – Open Contemporary Dance Classes
Queensland contemporary dance artists, Michael Smith and Ashleigh Musk, are undertaking a residency for a new performance project Fertile Ground at HOTA this November.
Fertile Ground looks to interrogate the multiplicities of ‘paradise’, through the research and deconstruction of architecture, literature, religion and philosophy. Through looking at current environmental and humanitarian crises, Fertile Ground seeks to create space to face the reality we currently inhabit, and to reimagine potential futures we could occupy.
As part of their residency, Michael and Ashleigh will be leading daily open contemporary dance classes at HOTA. The classes will be taught at a pre-professional / professional level and will be a mix of task-based improvisations, floorwork and movement phrases. Anyone with dance experience is welcome to join.
