June Luncheon 2014 with Mr David Pledger
The Graduate Union Of The University Of Melbourne Inc
Art, Community, Lunch
Mr David Pledger speaks on 'Collaborate or Perish: The End of The Specialist' at Graduate House on 4th June 2014 for our Monthly Luncheon.
In 20th C Europe the word ‘collaborate’ was associated with the traitorous practice of ‘working with the enemy’. This century, it has the more productive association of ‘working together’. As an artist whose practice is characterised by collaboration across artforms, sectors and oceans, his view is that those who have a deep understanding of collaboration as a principle of knowledge creation and communication can offer great benefits to future society. David Pledger will talk to these ideas and present work on a current artistic project, Running Man, working across neurology, cardiology, exercise physiology, sport, live performance and interactive technology.
David Pledger is an intermedia artist working within and between the performing, visual and media arts. His design and direction have received numerous nominations in theatre, dance and opera from the Victorian Green Room Awards. He is a recipient of the Sydney Myer Performing Arts Award and the Kenneth Myer Performing Arts Medal for his work as a director and actor in live performance. As a writer, he has been commissioned by Circe Films, SBS, cinemedia, Sydney Opera House, Playbox Theatre Centre, Theatreworks and through the Victoria Commissions and the Major Festivals Initiative.
