Ros Warby - Creating work from the Practice of Performance


Addressing the notion of ‘where to begin?' Can we let the practice of performance inform the direction the work takes and not limit the development process to our preconceived ideas about what we think might be a creative or resonant outcome. Without reducing or eliminating content can we notice thematic content, concepts, ideas, material, manifest from the practice of dance. What then? How do we manage our innate urge to manipulate, create, interfere and direct the dance from a place we think we understand. Ros Warby is a leading Australian dancer/choreographer. Her award winning work has been presented in Australia, Europe and the USA. The solo dances she creates invoke characters that often transcend archetypes by sliding between iconic figures and ideas. Recognised for her unique performance work, Warby has also performed with numerous companies and artists including Lucy Guerin Inc. and the Deborah Hay Company. Ros Warby is furthermore performing as a part of Dance Umbrella 2010.
