CLAUDIA LA ROCCO IN RESONANCE WITH THE KEIR CHOREOGRAPHIC AWARD

A reading, writing, moving, drawing, sitting room that encourages a porousness between the inward-looking world of the solitary maker and the social world of improvisation and chance encounters.

A room stocked with good wine and invited guests, natural light, comfortable seats, previous works and present influences. A room in which stillness and quiet are always suitable answers. A work that reveals itself in the doing and being, that builds itself out of time spent and ideas exchanged.

About the Artist

Claudia La Rocco’s work explores hybridity and improvisation, moving between criticism, poetry, fiction, and performance. Her books include the selected writings The Best Most Useless Dress (Badlands Unlimited) and the sf novel petit cadeau (The Chocolate Factory theater). She was a critic and reporter for The New York Times from 2005-2015 and is Editorial Director of SFMOMA’s interdisciplinary commissioning platform Open Space. Claudia La Rocco is a member of the Keir Choreographic Award jury in 2020.

About the Program

The Keir Choreographic Award: Dancehouse Public Program (29 February 2020 – 15 March 2020) is presented by Dancehouse in partnership with Abbotsford Convent, LGI/WYXZ, Temperance Hall, Chunky Move, The Commons/Fringe, University of Melbourne/ Victorian College of the Arts, The Mill Adeleide.

Dancehouse’s Keir Choreographic Award (KCA) Public Program accompanies the KCA competition and is an integral part of this initiative and of Dancehouse’s ongoing commitment to promote dialogue, reflection, accessibility and criticality for the art form, its makers and its audiences. It aims to cross-pollinate an array of outstanding thinkers and practitioners from the dance field and other communities of thought  in order to provide a unique context in which to consider the deep, subtle ways that dance, with its multiplicity of choreographed and embodied manifestations, connects to the social, the ethical, the political and as importantly, to our most inner selves.
