About Harrison’s Residency
“My dance partner, Michaela Tancheff and I will spend the two weeks refining and deepening our relationship to the dance; we will dive further into understanding its complex physical inner workings and search for its logic and sweet spots.
My aim over the two weeks is also to continue enjoying the process of researching the dance and play and to follow my obsessions and instincts without too much judgment. I hope that the work starts to reveal a logic or structure/ order in which it happens.
I would love to use the Critter session at the end of the residency as an opportunity to share parts and pieces of the work and activate what happens to them in the performance setting. I am also interested in speaking and receiving feedback about how things are read and experienced from the audience’s perspective.”
I am very fortunate and grateful to have received this LGI moving forward residency.”
A contemporary tango. A rodeo partner dance. A scrummage. A mud wrestle. A honeymoon cuddle.
In Cuddle, two of Melbourne’s contemporary dance artists on the rise, Harrison Ritchie-Jones and Michaela Tancheff, expertly explore and subvert expectations around intimacy. Circled around the space like spectators at a wrestling match, the audience witness a difficult, dynamic duel that’s full of surreal sonic and visual surprises.
