dance in nature
Elizabeth cameron dalman
Recorded virtual lunch
Saturday 30 October 12 - 1pm
Join Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM, dubbed the Mother of Contemporary Dance in Australia, for a recorded virtual lunch and enjoy her presentation about her work creating Dance in Nature.
Pour yourself a glass of Prosecco, prepare a cheese board and sit back in the comfort of your home for this intimate gathering. Perhaps support your local food and beverage vendors by ordering directly from them so that you can make this a special event at home.
Attendance will be via Zoom and a link to the scheduled Zoom event will be sent to attendees upon purchasing a ticket. While the presentation will be recorded, there will be the opportunity to provide comments and submit written questions via the Zoom platform, and Elizabeth will strive to provide answers after the event.
Elizabeth was the founder of Australian Dance Theatre in Adelaide in 1965 and its director for 10 years before moving to Italy where she lived and worked in the tiny hilltop village of Airole for 11 years before returning to Australia. She bought a property on the shores of Lake George/Weereewa just over thirty years ago and created Mirramu Creative Arts Centre and Mirramu Dance Company. Since then, her work making site specific work in Nature has flourished and a string of productions has been made and shown both in the open air and in theatres in Australia and internationally. Now in her eighties, Elizabeth is still dancing, choreographing, teaching and mentoring, as well as taking care of the 100 acre bush property set beside the ancient and sacred lake, which has been the inspiration for so many of her dance theatre works.
Cost $5 which will help support the costs of production, the artists and the festival administration.
Upon payment, participants will be sent a link to enable them to listen to the recorded presentation via Zoom on Saturday October 30 from 12 noon to 1pm.
