Things have been quiet on the site - but it certainly hasn’t been quiet off site. Over February and March, I hosted 2 of the 3 Taiwanese dance artists at my home. They were here in Melbourne as part of eXchange 2015 - a residency between 3 Taiwanese dance artists, and 3 Melbourne-based Australian dance… Continue reading changing gears
At the “Independence” Within an “Industry" session at #ATF2015, I raised the point of currency. I wondered about how we could redefine currency in the way we work.
