  • Thursday talks: Tarantism

    Thursday 16 May 2013, 1.00- 1.30pm
    Professor Rachel Fensham

    An informal series of insightful presentations by creative thinkers in response to the Australian premiere of two distinct film works, Frances Stark: My best thing and Joachim Koester:Tarantism.

    The third talk in the series is presented by Professor Rachel Fensham, Head of the School of Culture and Communication, the University of Melbourne.

    Rachel's current research interests lie in archival studies (digital or otherwise); relations between modernism and movement analysis; theories of affect and spectatorship; and the extension of these ideas to choreographic histories.

    Working as a performance historian and theorist, Rachel has taught feminist and postcolonial theatre, 20th and 21st century dance, and embodied representations in film, performance and visual arts, in relation to Australian, British and American case studies.
