Federal resident, Kimberley McIntyre is one of the artistic collaborators for The Corner Dance Lab 16 – 24 January 2015. She joins co-founders Philip Channells (Dance Integrated Australia) & Gavin Webber (The Farm) for this 8-day event held at Jasper Corner, which is the cultural heart of the Federal village just 30 mins inland from Byron Bay.
Kimberley brings to this well-anticipated regional dance event a wealth of knowledge of the local dance scene along with her years of practice dedicated to Contact Improvisation.
Having witnessed the community showing of the outcome of The Corner Dance Lab’s week-long explorations last January, I am very excited to be part of the teaching team at the next one. The amount of work that was presented with such an amazing range of skills and sensitivities gave both audiences and participants a rare and exquisite experience. From an audience point of view I was blown away by the amount of different offerings that had been crystallised over one week and proud as a local of Federal village to having something so cutting-edge happening just down the road at Jasper Corner. 2015 is set to have even more collaborations with artists from different disciplines adding multi media possibilities to the mix. It’s going to be amazing. Kimberley McIntrye
There will be Auslan interpreters available throughout the project.

Kimberley McIntyre is an artist whose practice includes contemporary dance, improvisation, language and contact improvisation (CI). Ideas are set only to allow them to be played with, and performances that work are full of play and unknowing.
Kimberley has taught, trained and performed in Australia, Europe, and India with many brilliant artists. Her style of dance and performance has been shaped by many and influences of regard include; Janis Claxton (contemporary dance & Improvisation), Helen Clark Lapin (CI), Alice Cumins (BMC & Impro), Tony Osborne (performance & Impro), Al Wunder Theatre (Performance and Improvisation), David Zambrano (flying low technique), Wendll Beavers (developmental movement), Andrew d.L Harwood (CI), Nancy Stark Smith (CI), Russel Dumas (modern dance).
Kimberley resides in Northern NSW where she teaches workshops in Dance, Improvisation and CI. As part of the Sydney Fringe program, Kimberley created and performed a new solo work, The Funeral Plan at the Annandale Arts Centre’s Platform Shorts 2013 season and the Sydney Fringe 2014. This new work is personal, funny and poignant piece of dance theatre that resulted from her interest and training in end of life care.
