KEYNOTE LECTURE: Choy Ka Fai - How does a ghost choreograph?

Choy Ka Fai Unbearable Darkness

Dates & Session Times

Saturday 19 Oct - 5:00pm


Bay 19. Carriageworks
245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh


This lecture will trace the unorthodox research process and intriguing methodologies behind Choy Ka Fai’s Liveworks performance Unbearable Darkness. Ka Fai proposes the idea of a post-human choreography and asks: what is humanly impossible and ghostly possible? How do the digital, the virtual, the immaterial or non-human expressions push us to rethink and expand the notion of choreography? What are the technological potentials of dancing with the spirit of the Butoh master?


This is a free event but bookings are essential.

Duration: 80 minutes
