ON THE TABLE

IN COLLABORATION WITH REBECCA JENSEN

On The Table is a weekly event for artistic exchange and collaboration run by Caitlin Dear and Rebecca Jensen at Dancehouse, Melbourne.

Each week’s session is hosted by a different artist or collective who are invited to put something ‘on the table’ for everyone to examine together. The program features artists working with different styles of dance, approaches to choreography, methods of bodily practice and relationships to movement.

 

On The Table particularly aims to highlight artists who work with dance in combination with other fields (for example gaming, science, therapy and visual art). Anyone from these intersecting fields are encouraged to come along!

Sessions range from workshops and in-progress performance showings to open artistic explorations. Artists might share choreographic material, a practice, an idea, a framework, a question, a score, a reading or any manner of provocation.

 

Everyone is invited to take part in the tasks at hand. Participation can be as little or as much as desired and you are free to come and just watch.

On The Table is free to attend and everyone is welcome whether you’re a professional dancer or you’ve never danced before. 

 

Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move in and bring a water bottle.

For any questions or to submit an idea, please contact onthetable.contact@gmail.com

Working for the climate in art and action. 

Open to all, the Green Bee is a series of free workshops facilitated by local artists, activists, scientists, environmentalists and community groups, to connect like-minded people to take climate action.

Join this series of working sessions to create and take climate action through a mix of art, advocacy, action, discussion, and practical support of local campaigns. Through this collaborative work, The Green Bee aims to build meaningful connections, future collaborations, support networks, and friendships.

There are four Green Bee Workshops scheduled for Summer/ Autumn 2022.

The Green Bee is a partnership between Rebecca Jensen and Caitlin Dear, and Dancehouse. The project is supported by City of Yarra.
