Talks, Forums and Special Events
LGI constantly seeks ways to play an active role in both local and global contemporary dance discourse. This desire extends beyond the Company’s performance and participatory programs and can include talks, forums and film showings. Through these activities, we invite the dance community and wider public to discover, learn, debate and discuss themes and subjects important to contemporary dance.
Dance Dialogues: Online series
From September 2020, Dance Dialogues will be hosted online, offering conversations between dance artists exploring what practice is now. Two artists are invited to discuss their perspectives on practice and art-making in a relaxed hour-long chat, including an audience Q&A.
Upcoming conversations: more announced shortly

Critter is an artist feedback program facilitated by LGI to provide a platform for artists to generate critical exchange.
An evolution of First Run which began in 2008, Critter provides artists with a tailored opportunity to share material with a critical outcome and initiate discussion relevant to their new work’s stage of development.
Artists are invited to think broadly to formulate the most appropriate and useful format of Critter for their project’s stage of development. This could include a sharing of material and discussion to generate critical feedback with peers, or inviting subject experts to offer further insight or context to their project.
Critter is an open, artist-centred and malleable space of possibility.
