“sometimes i dream of having a car… and then i borrow my housemates car” LL

Ep 40:

Leah Landau is a dance artist who creates her own solo work, and choreographs with and on others, following a particular interest in improvisation, writing and sculpture.
We met just before her Sydney premiere of Summer Bone and spoke about:

-being unknowable, indistinguishable, inextinguishable
Tere O’Connor and his show baby
Deborah Hay and impossibility (books)
Ros Crisp and the access to play
Ros Warby
-nursing the dance
-accounting for (viewers) expectation
-being shifted by a piece
-the film Leah mentions – Gerry
Reality is Broken – Jane McGonigal
Whelping Box – Branch Nebula
-being punished and sent to your room as similar to a solo studio practice
-hitting ones stride
-the privilege of having an interest
