About the Project

Kaldor Public Art Projects in collaboration with Carriageworks presents French choreographer and artist Xavier Le Roy.

This three-part Project will see Le Roy work with artistic collaborator Scarlet Yu, and 18 Australian performers to create a groundbreaking new work
Temporary Title, 2015, and for the first time, the public will be invited to experience the creative development of a Kaldor Public Art Project through a series of open rehearsals. In Addition, Le Roy will perform his seminal solo work Self Unfinished (1998), which has never before been presented in Australia.  
Over the past two decades, Le Roy has collaborated with numerous acclaimed artists around the world to create his works. In 2012, Le Roy was invited by Laurence Rassel to create his first exhibition Retrospective at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies solidifying him as a key figure in the recent dialogue between choreography and contemporary art. This exhibition was later presented to critical acclaim at Centre Pompidou, Paris, and MoMA PS1 in New York. Le Roy’s work Untitled, 2012, was presented at the 27th Kaldor Public Art Project, 13 Rooms, and was recognised as one of the strongest and most resonant pieces in the exhibition.

Three open rehearsals offer the public first-hand, intimate insights into Xavier Le Roy's distinctive creative process. Participants will assist Le Roy, collaborator Scarlet Yu, and the 18 Australian performers to engage in a dialogue that will shape the new work through collective experiences. The dialogue will be opened further through a series of written reflections and conversations contributed to by the public, hosted on our blog.
