Solo Performance Improvisation with   Movement and Voice

Participants will develop the skills of generating and shaping content whilst working between movement and vocal modes. This work is further fuelled by the spirit of communication and shared pleasure. Participants are encouraged to become their own editor in performance, using the skills of shifting their point of attention, developing texture and maintaining clarity.  Participants should also come expecting to enjoy themselves.

In 1996 she created the Omeo Dance studio in Sydney as a site for her choreographic research for over 10 years, receiving a number of awards and a choreographic fellowship from the Australia Council, (2000-2001). Invited to Paris by French producer, Michel Caserta in 2002, in 2003 Carolyn Carlson made her an associate artist of her Atelier de Paris (2003 – 2012).
