For the second year running, Kate Harman joins the creative team for The Corner Dance Lab, which is a consolidated 8-day program of workshops, masterclasses and performance making projects for emerging and established dancers and choreographers.

This annual dance event held at The Federal School of Arts’ Japser Corner from Friday 16 – Saturday 24 January 2015, is led by Philip Channells (Dance Integrated Australia) and Gavin Webber (The Farm).

The Corner Dance Lab creates opportunities for local resident artists from Federal to collaborate with like-minded creative people living in regional NSW and other Australian states and territories while attracting participation from artists living and working abroad.

Situated in the historic Federal village, 15 minutes off the Pacific Highway along the Coolamon Scenic Drive (not far from Byron Bay), Jasper Corner is the hub of The Corner Dance Lab which is an accessible venue. Spread across two venues and outdoor spaces, the program is based around a basic philosophy of utilising communication as a creative tool. 

I’m very excited to again be part of The Corner this coming year. Last year we created an environment of connecting and sharing, a coming together of people with many different experiences of dance and their bodies. For me it is a place that creates new possibilities and unexpected discoveries. Kate Harman

The Corner Dance Lab will have Auslan interpreters throughout the event.
