Lucy Guerin: NEWRETRO
Mar 25 – Apr 2, 2023
Australian Centre for Contemporary Art
Melbourne, Australia

Drawing on twenty-one existing dance works from the past twenty-one years, NEWRETRO is a major durational performance installation by leading contemporary choreographer Lucy Guerin. It takes the form of a site-responsive choreographic work and installation occupying ACCA’s galleries.

NEWRETRO reconstructs fragments retrieved from Lucy Guerin Inc’s back-catalogue and relearnt by an ensemble of twenty-one dancers. The work’s score is both retrospective and speculative, condensing choreography from different time periods into the same temporal space, creating a living archive of new, corporeal gestures.

Capturing the physical imprint of several generations of dancers, NEWRETRO frames the material of the body within an embodied relationship to architecture and the subject. The performance unfolds over an extended three-hour duration, inviting audiences into a space at once intimate and spectacular.

Presented as part of Frame: A biennial of dance

  • ICON – O – STASYS
    May 31 – Nov 3, 2024
    Stasys Museum
    Panevėžys, Lithuania

    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)

  • Yuwei Tu: Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls
    May 4 – Jun 15, 2024
    Rusha & Co.
    Los Angeles, USA

    Rusha & Co. is pleased to announce Yuwei Tu: Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls, the inaugural solo exhibition by the artist. Drawing inspiration from Ocean Vuong’s poem of the same title, this presentation of works echoes similar themes, exploring the complexities of self and felt emotion. Yuwei’s work examines themes of love, loss, and solitude. Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls is an ode to maternal relationships, an introspection of consciousness and a slow contemplation of self-acceptance. (more…)
