Mary Wycherley: Carte Blanche

Modul-dance Carte Blanche
January 2012

As part of the modul-dance Carte Blanche programme, Mary Wycherley was invited to participate in a choreographic research week with 15 other international artists in the Netherlands. The event was hosted by Tilburg Dansstad, a cooperation between several cultural institutions across the city of Tilburg.

Moving between theoretical lectures, discussions, and workshops, the week centered on the theme Mirrors of identity – inspirational bodies. A strong focus was on investigating multi-disciplinary practice; how people work and think in other disciplines, the arts, science, sociology, anthropology, and how we translate these practices into our own creative process. Engaging with the multi-disciplinary nature of her own dance practice, the week proved stimulating in the context of her ongoing investigations into choreography, cinematography and video art.  Following on, Mary is currently developing material shot during a workshop with artist Damien Jalet (performer and collaborator with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Eastman Company).
