In light of today’s advice from Australia’s Chief Medical Officer, please note the Keir Choreographic Award Public Program will proceed based on a planned attendance of 200. We continue to pay close attention to the advice of NSW Government Health to ensure we follow rigorous preventative measures and positive hygiene practices.

Take part in free talks, workshops and masterclasses with leading global artists and dance practitioners. The Keir Choreographic Award Public Program is presented in both Sydney and Melbourne and expands the profile, debate and audience engagement with choreographic practice in Australia. View the program below. Registration and EOI open now.

Carriageworks has invited choreographer and dancer Brooke Stamp and artist Sarah Rodigari to be Guest Curators for the public program in Sydney.

Note from Guest Curators:

The program aims to create opportunities for Sydney-based artists and audiences to gain access and insight to the international scope of discourse presented by the jurors. We’re interested to create proximity to physical practice and critical discourse, and explore embodied knowledges, global pedagogical lineages and changing curatorial relationships with dance and choreography.

Our interest is to develop and support opportunities for a particularly ‘Sydney’-based ecology of dancers and non-dancers, queer and first nations artists, writers, thinkers and performance-makers through a series of workshops, panel discussions, lectures and morning classes.
