Lucia Kickham: HATCH Showing

Fri 14 Dec 2018
17:00 - 18:00
Free. RSVP to:

Lucia Kickham presents work she has created through her HATCH Award.

Lucia has used her HATCH as an incubation period to examine the place of warm-up in contemporary dance practice. With a team of skilled dancers, guest movement practitioners, a DJ and a sports psychologist, she will investigate how we, as dancers and humans, make ourselves available and open for action. How do we prepare ourselves for the unexpected and as yet unimagined future? Lucia and her creative team will explore the concepts of adaptive preparation, versatile readiness and reactive availability in performance, within dance and other movement disciplines.
