澳洲墨爾本Dance Massive 2017
Melbourne Dance Massive 2017
2017年的第一季歐美、亞洲和澳洲等地都舉行了不少藝術節、研討會和展銷會，供國際製作人節目策劃人、藝術行政人和藝術家參與。如一月於美國紐約舉行了由 Association of Performing Arts Professionals主辦的國際表演藝術會議及市場（Global Performing Arts Conference and Marketplace），國際演藝協會（ISPA）舉辦的國際會議，同期還有COIL Festival， 雷達外藝術節（Under the Radar Festival） 和美國真實藝術節（American Realness）。二月有於英國布里斯托爾舉辦的兩年一度的 In Between Time - Bristol International Festival和日本的橫濱表演藝術交流會（TPAM）。三月有於澳洲墨爾本的第一屆亞洲 TOPA 和兩年一度的Dance Massive。因今年工作計劃，所以選擇了參與橫濱表演藝術交流會TPAM和Dance Massive，今期就主要分享澳洲之旅。
Many Art Festivals, Conferences, and Arts Market are held in Europe, America, Asia, and Australia in the first part of 2017. They provide platforms for international producers, curators, art administrators, and artists to participate. In January, the Association of Performing Arts Professionals organized APAP/NYC Global Performing Arts Conference and Marketplace and the International Society for the Performing Arts held the ISPA Congress in New York City. Going on at the same time were COIL Festival, Under the Radar Festival, and American Realness. In February, In Between Time - Bristol International Festival in Bristol, England, held biennially, and Tokyo Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama (TPAM), Japan are convened. This March had the first edition of Asia TOPA and the biennial Dance Massive festival in Melbourne, Australia. Due to my work schedule, I could only attend TPAM in Yokohama and Dance Massive and for this issue, the focus is on Australia.
自2009年以來，澳洲藝術委員會和創意維多利亞便開始支持於墨爾本舉辦的Dance Massive舞蹈平台項目。每年都會邀請來自世界各地的製作人和節目策展人參與，觀看澳洲的當代舞蹈作品和安排不同活動給予藝術家和藝團建立對話和網絡的機會。我特別欣賞節目策展由一個以場地組成的聯盟共同策劃，包括 Arts House， Dancehouse 和 Malthouse Theatre。這些場地均由場地藝術總監按各場地藝術定位方向和各自營運不同大小的場地來策展節目。這樣的聯盟負責形式，既可分享資源、促進當地協作，亦可擴闊節目層面，整合規模，加深和突出澳洲藝術家和作品的多元性。
In 2009, the Australian Government Ministry for the Arts and Creative Victoria began its support of Dance Massive; a contemporary dance platform in Melbourne. The platform invites producers and festival curators from all over the world to attend a series of contemporary dance performances made in Australia and activities that provide opportunities to establish dialogue and networking for artists and arts group. I appreciated the co-curated programs by Melbourne arts organizations - Arts House, Dancehouse, and Malthouse Theatre. Each of the Artistic Directors of the three organizations has input into designing the programs based on their respective artistic vision, the different scale of operations, and the various venue sizes . This form of co-curating allows sharing of resources and promoting local collaboration. At the same time, it broadens the programing area and enlarges the scale of the platform, also, it deepens and highlights the diversity of work of Australian artists.
