2018 Temperance Hall International Artist-in-Residence - Bruno Isaković


Following our hugely successful 2017 International Artist Residency with Jack Ferver, we're thrilled to announce Croatian artist, Bruno Isaković will be our second International Artist-in-Residence in January/February 2018.

Bruno will present 3 performances of his acclaimed solo work Denuded as part of the 2018 Midsumma Festival 1 - 3 February at Temperance Hall. 

Presented by Domino Projects (Croatia) in association with Phillip Adams BalletLabDenuded becomes a site for investigating the invisible through the transformation of physicality guided by breath. The work denotes anything not fitting a framework of rationality and opens up spaces to be filled with the irrationality we all carry within us.

He has received various scholarships and awards for his work including Best Solo Dance at Solo Dance International Festival, Budapest and a 2016 Croatian National Award for Best Choreographer Denuded - ensemble version.

Performance Workshop with Bruno Isaković Jan 29 - 31, 2018

Alongside his performance of Denuded, Bruno will also lead a 3 day performance workshop from 29 - 31 January at Temperance Hall

In this workshop, participants will immerse in deep study of their breath, physical tension and its effect on body alignment. The interconnected structure of breath and body tension/release permeates the body in each moment. When we are scared or nervous, when we are relaxed or sleeping, excited or sensual, the breathing reflects our state and defines the way we are in our bodies. This workshop is suitable for tertiary and professional level dancers, actors and performing artists.

Dates: Monday 29 - Wednesday 31 January 
Times: 10am - 1pm daily 
Venue: Temperance Hall – 199 Napier St, South Melbourne
Cost: Full - $55 Conc - $45
