Talk/Workshop with Dr Erin Brannigan

  • Dance Limerick John's Square Limerick, County Limerick Ireland

Intermedial Composition: Dance and the Contemporary Arts

Dr Erin Brannigan is Senior Lecturer in Dance at the University of New South Wales and works in the fields of dance and film as an academic and curator.  She was the founding Director of ReelDance (1999-2008) and has curated dance screen programmes and exhibitions for the Sydney Festival, Melbourne International Arts Festival and international dance screen festivals.  She writes on dance for the Australian arts newspaper RealTime.

Erin Brannigan's current research project, Dance and the Visual Arts: Composition: Experiment: Sensation, acknowledges recent curatorial, creative and theoretical work and moves from critique to productive propositions at the point where dance meets its own limits and interacts with the visual arts.

At Light Moves, Dr Brannican will explore methods for theorising intermedial works of art that involve dance and choreography, looking specifically at the film-dance and visual arts-dance relationships.
