DOYLE + NANKIVELL – PHYSICAL LANGUAGES OF STORYTELLING

Maxine Doyle & Gabrielle Nankivell – 11 Days, Sep 2-14

WHO
Maxine Doyle + Gabrielle Nankivell

WHAT
Maxine and Gabrielle share an interest in creative process as a site of collaborative experimentation – working with people and environments to create distinctive, dramatic worlds and experiences that resonate personally and globally.

Their shared curiosity in the relational dynamics between performers, audience and the work are the starting point for the questions of their collaboration.

How through dance and theatre do we amplify the human condition?

How can we unlock an individual language of tension and rhythm to tell stories, reveal characters and charge atmospheres?

In this workshop Gabrielle and Maxine will share their artistic dialogue through extended improvisation scores and creative practice. The opportunity for studio and some site-based work will develop ideas and approaches for articulate movement language and site-sympathetic performance.

Note: This workshop program may lead directly to a paid creative development and performance outcome in 2025/26.
