Opening Performance: Thursday 23 February, 12-5pm

The Design Plot was a performance project that developed structures that bring together spatial mapping, systems of sensory awareness, construction as scenography and explores the potential for collective improvised decision making.

The work unfolded through a methodology that includes open research sessions, performance and the development of performance mechanisms through daily choreographic and physical practice. Shelley Lasica is one of Australia's most celebrated dancers and choreographers. Her practice is characterised by cross-disciplinary collaborations and an interest in the presentation of dance in various contexts. Lasica has choreographed, directed and performed dance works in spaces throughout Australia and internationally including Melbourne Festival; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Centre Nationale de la Danse, Paris; Siobhan Davies Studios, London; Dance Massive, Melbourne; and MPavilion, Melbourne. 

Choreographer and Director: Shelley Lasica
Collaborators: Ellen Davies, Timothy Harvey, Louella Hogan, Daniel Newell, Lilian Steiner, Jo White

The Design Plot was an evolving project framework with other iterations occurring at MPavilion, Melbourne and RMIT Design Hub, Melbourne.

This project is supported by the City of Yarra and Gertrude Contemporary.
