The Body as a Riddle

Tasdance

Part dance, part theatre, part participation, The Body as a Riddle sees award-winning Portuguese choreographer, Madalena Victorino, and dance artist Marta Silva expertly engage audiences through unexpected events and by invigorating public spaces. Accompanying each unique experience is an exhibition of images and choreographic letters that provide an exposé on the journey from original concept to performance reality.

Using the exhibition as a creative starting point, Victorino utilises the skills of Tasmania’s very own Tasdance ensemble to develop a series of interactive solo, duet and group scenarios which intersect with audiences.

A companion project to The Body as a Riddle is Our ‘Hood, Our People, a community arts project created in partnership between the Northern Suburbs Community Centre, Tasdance and Ten Days, led by Portuguese creative artists, Madalena Victorino and Marta Silva.

 

Presented by Tasdance in association with Ten Days, Harvest Launceston Market and Glenorchy City Council

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body
