  • Issue 34 - In/between/Place: Tess de Quincey's Bodyweather of the Central
           Desert
    • Abstract: Anderson, Mary Elizabeth
      Tess de Quincey is one of the best known Butoh/Bodyweather practitioners in Australia, having created numerous site-specific and place-based works internationally over the span of her career thus far. Among her most remarkable longitudinal projects are the three 'Triple Alice' art-labs: unique experiments in place-based performance training conducted in the Australian Central Desert in 1999, 2000 and 2001. During Triple Alice 1, 2, and 3, artists and scholars from the De Quincey Company, the University of Sydney, and several other international locations all gathered at Hamilton Downs, a disused cattle station/youth camp approximately 100km outside of Alice Springs, Northern Territory, to experiment with intensive Bodyweather training, generative performance-making and documentation. The training objective underlying the Triple Alice project is the notion of 'the body becoming place' (Grant with de Quincey 2006, p. 251). In the Triple Alice laboratories, Bodyweather training was implemented to get participants to feel in and of a place - even if only for a handful of weeks at a time. This was established substantially through ritual activities and repetition of exercises - with the added significance of repetition from year to year - all of which was organized around a highly regimented schedule. Reviewing participant diaries, reflective and analytical writings, as well as other training ephemera from Triple Alice 1, 2, and 3, this article examines the extent to which de Quincey has generated what she refers to as 'a field of research which pendulates between the city and the desert' (Grant with de Quincey 2006, p. 253) that is, at once, about each specific site of investigation while at the same time existing between all of those places.

  • Issue 34 - Ronald Hynd's Merry Widow: Toward a Definition of the 'Ballet
           Lyrique'
    • Abstract: Edgecombe, Rodney Stenning
      While the subsidiary purpose of this essay is to marshal some thoughts about Ronald Hynd's Merry Widow, premiered by the Australian Ballet in 1975, I shall also use the occasion to argue for the existence of a ballet genre not yet officially recognized, but subsisting at a point between the Petipan ballet d' cole and the ballet demi-caract re. This I shall call the ballet lyrique, naming it after a comparable middle way in the taxonomy of opera kinds. Op ra lyrique was forged from the levity of op ra-comique on the one hand and the grandeur of grand op ra (grand opera) on the other, and also reconciled the German and Italian schools, the first noted for its dramatic responsiveness, and the second for its lyric grace. Although Herv Lacombe was the first to give such transitional works an official name, commentators have long acknowledged their existence, Edward Dent remarking that French operas written in the second half of the nineteenth century 'represent something half-way between grand opera and op ra-comique' (95). The differences between the works I shall characterize as ballets lyriques - works chiefly of the English school - and those that went before have likewise been noted. Frederick Ashton once observed that his garden at Walton Place was 'very much apr s Le N tre [who designed the gardens of Versailles], just as my ballets are apr s Petipa' (Kavanagh 583). Taking this as an epigraph, I shall attempt to assign a value to the preposition 'apr s.'

  • Issue 34 - Designing for Nina Verchinina's Choreographic Vivacity: A New
           Light on Loudon Sainthill's Art
    • Abstract: Montana, Andrew
      Nina Verchinina (1910-1995) was a striking, classically trained dancer whose beauty and choreographic work in the modern idiom were direct sources of inspiration for Loudon Sainthill's art. Arriving in Sydney in December 1939, along with Sainthill she had travelled aboard the Orcades from England with the Original Ballet Russe, the third Ballets Russes company to visit Australia, orchestrated by its savvy and creative director Colonel Wassily de Basil. As a young Australian artist whose lover Harry Tatlock Miller was the writer, entrepreneur and organiser of the Art for Theatre and Ballet exhibition held in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in conjunction with this tour, Sainthill had been fired by the colour, design, choreography and energy of the Ballets Russes and its principal dancers since their first Australian visit in 1936.

  • Issue 34 - The Two 'Cups' of 1962: The Dancing Horses of the Australian
           Ballet and the National Theatre
    • Abstract: Vincent, Jordan Beth
      This ballet about the quintessentially Australian Melbourne Cup horserace of 1861 was Melbourne Cup, choreographed by Rex Reid (1921-2000) for the Australian Ballet's inaugural season in 1962. Evidence of artistic director Dame Peggy van Praagh's interest in balancing old repertoire with new, Melbourne Cup was performed alongside the classical Romantic standbys of Swan Lake, Les Sylphides and Copp lia. Melbourne Cup premiered as part of the second program of the first season on 19 November 1962 at Her Majesty's Theatre in Sydney, and featured a resplendent Kathleen Gorham as Archer, the winning horse of Australia's first Melbourne Cup race. A love story between a na ve jackeroo, performed by Garth Welch, and a debutante, danced by Leonie Leahy, added a sentimental touch. With period music by Jacques Offenbach and Johann Strauss arranged by Harold Badger, set and costume design by Ann Church, a scenario written by Reid and Geoffrey Ingram and Reid's spirited choreography, Melbourne Cup was very much a home-grown affair - a veritable 'Ga t Australienne' (Brown 1967 p. 61).

  • Issue 33 - The Mentor, Mentored
    • Abstract: Lucas, Brian
      Artists who are often only just setting out on a pathway of aesthetic discovery, have a particular and invaluable skill. They have a sometimes clumsy, sometimes guileless but always priceless and effective way of keeping us all honest and 'on task'. They make sure that we walk the talk, that we follow through on our statements and that we live up to our ideals.

  • Issue 33 - Retrospective
    • Abstract: Lasica, Shelley
      Making a piece of work is a sort of simultaneous thinking about the minutiae of the physical language, the sensation and feeling of where it will be with an audience, what it will be like in performance, and the intellectual challenge of an idea transforming itself into an actuality. The dominant structure in the process is the very ephemerality of performance.

The approach fuses an expressive, physical language with a detailed exploration of the performance site, emphasizing the integration of lighting and design while working collaboratively, from inception, with performers and creative teams.

    • Abstract: Ryan, Elizabeth; Saunders, Emma; McKernan, Jane
      The Fondue Set, as the name suggests, is a melting pot. The primary ingredient is the dancing body. We approach our work first and foremost as dancers with our main conduit for creative communication being the language of dance. But we do not have an existing dance vocabulary but one that evolves and is unique to the process and work we are making. Our dancing body is a human body, full of flaws, beauty, awkwardness, memories, strength and weaknesses. Therein lies our endless inspiration and stimulus.

      Choreography is one of those artistic endeavours where you have to learn in public, first in front of your collaborators, then an audience. It is extremely challenging to attempt to add some modest new element to the lexicon, to give the audience some different window on the body and its capability, or to take them with you on a journey.

      The article explores the utility of actor-network theory for researching performance. Actor-networks are ensembles of bodies and objects, animate and inanimate, that translate chains of action. Actions are translated between the actors in a network. Devolution invites one to consider how humans and machines connect and interact. Its choreography explores how actions and affects are translated between humans and machines. Devolution presents an opportunity within dance studies to consider the significance of humans dancing with machines.

It is suggested that a collaboration between 'dancers' and 'choreographers', which makes them co-creators of dance with an aim of nurturing one another, is necessary in professional dance making.

  • Issue 28 - Creating Collaborative Partnerships: Enabling Public Access to
           Live Urban Art, Innovative Performance and Creative Research
    • Abstract: Stock, Cheryl
      This paper explores a large-scale international project, Accented Body, which involved partnerships across the arts industry, the tertiary sector, government and philanthropic organisations. These partnerships coalesced around a multifaceted concept of the body as site and in site through connectivity. Complex funding and creative partnerships are often required to allow artists to access technologies and resources in order to realise works of scale which connect physical and virtual environments and artists across countries. What follows provides evidence of a successful role model in which research, community access and artistic goals were realised through processes linking the aspirations of all three sectors, in Australia and beyond. While the rhetoric of global connectivity has become part of the lexicon of arts practice, this often requires resource-intensive technologies beyond the reach of independent and project-based artists. Accented Bodywas able to realise such rhetoric by bringing together small groups of interdisciplinary artists to work in tandem with large academic institutions, philanthropic organisations and arts industry funding bodies. It provides a model of a highly visible international performance event achieved through a series of discrete performance teams interconnected by an overarching creative brief. Central to all the partnerships was the creative collaboration between artists and technicians in realising the concept of the body in site and as site, through physical and virtual connectivities in a performative environment. This occurred through thirty key artists from five countries working together across six sites at a newly developed urban village in Brisbane, with distributed events in Korea and the United Kingdom. Meeting at this major geographical site for the creative process and final performance enabled artists and technicians to have access to state-of-the-art technological infrastructure at a major university within the urban village. The largely outdoor interactive environment provided both real time and virtual presences for onsite and remote audiences.

  • Issue 27 - Thinking Bodies, Dancing Minds: Research with Communities of
           Creative Minds
    • Abstract: McKechnie, Shirley
      The dynamic and spatial relationships that characterise a fine choreographic creation are evidence of complex thinking in four dimensions. In seminal investigations, researchers from the Victorian College of the Arts and the Universities of Melbourne and Western Sydney collaborated with dance artists and scholars to explore the nature of thinking in the embodiment of kinaesthetic, cognitive, emotional and aesthetic perceptions. The project was funded by the Australian Research Council and included a study of fifty-five adolescent boys and girls who took part in an intensive dance enrichment program at the Australian Choreographic Centre in Canberra in 2004. The 23-minute film, Quantum Leapers, made by Research Associate Sue Healey, is one of the publications resulting from the investigations, and It reveals in vivid images how the nature of early experience in dance may influence life-long attitudes to thinking about the art-form of dance and how issues of importance to young people can be explored through its practice.

      The inherent competitive attitude due to a sporting influence and an ability to adapt to variations are the defining features of Australian dancers. These abilities and talent could make the Australian dance community unique in the world if supported through adequate funding and exposure to different cultures.
