Emma Saunders — Dancing With Myself

emma saunders — artist in residence

This month NORPA Associate Artist Emma Saunders was our Artist in Residence, exploring her new work Dancing With Myself. It is always a joy to watch Emma bravely exploring her work!

Dancing With Myself is one woman’s journey through space and time, where she has no space, and is completely out of time with what’s around her. This includes an extended abstract solo sequence where she is attempting to choreograph her instinct, and to explore further how movement can reveal its own narrative.

Emma Saunders is an artist, who works as a dancer, curator, choreographer and educator. Utilising a visceral, instinctive attack, her work is immediate, often working with humour, everyday movements, repetition, duration and abstraction. She co-created The Fondue Set — a formidable Sydney based dance trio well known for their signature theatricality and comedic style and was the inaugural Dance Curator at Campbelltown Arts Centre.
