About The Corner Dance Lab
Creative Director of Dance Integrated Australia, Philip Channells and Co-Director/Choreographer of The Farm, Gavin Webber established The Corner Dance Lab in 2013. The 9-day dance Lab is suitable for artists wanting to challenge themselves physically, intellectually and artistically.
Based in Federal in the Byron Bay Hinterland, The Corner Dance Lab attracts local and international artists from diverse backgrounds, different embodiment and life experiences who want to challenge themselves to work in an inclusive dance environment.
The Corner Dance Lab engages renowned teachers that will instruct daily routines, practice, ideas and experiments for an intensive program encompassing technique classes and improvisation to Yoga and choreographic practice.
Facilitators include: Laure Bachelot, Phil Blackman, Kristina Chan, Philip Channells, Victoria Chiu, Roland Cox, Hsin-Ju (Raw) Ely, Kate Harman, Lee-Anne Litton, Kimberley McIntyre, Timothy Ohl and Gavin Webber.
The Corner Dance Lab promotes the individual while occupying a supportive participatory environment and encourages constant dialogue and communication to feed the artist.
Be prepared to challenge yourself to find out what it is that is unique about you and what you have to say. No matter what type of dance you are interested in, without knowing your own voice you will never be able to speak. Gavin Webber.
For artists selected to develop their choreographic practice at The Corner Dance Lab, they will be mentored and assisted to realise the beginnings of their creative ideas. There will be an opportunity to show their work in progress at The Main Event showing.
