think tank

Last Thursday (11 Dec 2008), I had the pleasure of attending a think tank’ run by dancer/choreographers Natalie Cursio and Shannon Bott. They are currently in the early stages of a creative development and as part of the development they asked (and paid) six artists (from various disciplines, but mostly involved in performance of some kind) to bring materials in, to discuss, to think, and to generate a range of provocations for the project. The idea is based on think tanks used by Melbourne performance group NYID for specific script and idea development. In this case, however, Natalie and Shannon were less focused in their approach, and more interested in casting the net wide.

It was a fascinating day — following leads, open discussion, sharing. It will be interesting to see how the day informs the development of the new project.
