Movement - Creator and performer of FEMME, Erin Fowler will lead teachers through a number of creative processes and ideas connected to FEMME such as creating movement to voiceover text and other creative stimuli. Erin will also discuss how to help students develop and connect to a character in dance, considerations of artist and audience safety in creating personal/autobiographical work, and how to develop an authentic physicality that can give depth and layers to theatrical dance sequences.

Winner of Best Dance in the Adelaide Fringe 2019, and having just completed performances in Reykjavik, Edinburgh and Stockholm, FEMME is one woman's search for self in a world of gender and sexual conditioning. FEMME explores concepts of femininity and female sexuality, the female body, the gender roles we conform to, or break against, and what it means to be powerful in a largely masculine dominant culture.

It has been interesting to hear about process and how that often relates to our own process in the classroom... I have taken this back to my students as a way of connecting professional work with what they do. Teacher Subscriber (2018)
