Lizzie Thomson

“My work’s happening in the future” LT
“I don’t know how to not think in language” LT
“The exciting part of the process for me is when the words start arriving in response to the movement, they’re the exciting words” LT

Ep 39:

Lizzie Thomson is an independent artist working across dance, visual arts and contemporary performance practices. We met in the morning sun at Rushcutters Bay (near Critical Path) and spoke about:

-the process getting from an idea to a thing
-thinking in language
-having a “texta practice”
-being excited by words
-synesthesia as a super power
-doing as a form of thinking
-”its expected we begin with the word and then we realize the world” LT
-words as help to know what you’re doing
-the body exhibited as an object
-dance is super powerful
