Meet The Project Alchemy Artist Team
The Rebus Team is delighted to announce the EUROBODALLA SHIRE PROJECT ALCHEMY ARTISTS!
Please give a warm welcome to Elise May (Dancer/Choreographer/ Video Artist) who will be delivering an artist led bushfire project in Eurobodalla Shire.
Elise May is a nationally recognised dancer, choreographer and video artist whose career spans two decades. She has worked internationally and in Australia as an independent artist and performer. Elise joined Brisbane’s Expressions Dance Company (EDC) in 2008 and became Assistant Artistic Director to Natalie Weir. Elise performed, choreographed and was engaged as a teaching artist in Australia, the US, Switzerland, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea and China. In 2012 she received the Australian Dance Award – ‘Outstanding Performance by a Female Dancer’
Elise’s Master of Arts (Research) at QUT investigated the use of the moving image and digital media in live performance. Her choreographic practice continues to investigate performance design, installation, moving image, site-specific and interdisciplinary contexts for dance and digital media. Elise’s collaborations with animator Paul Van Opdenbosch explored the applications of X-sens motion-capture technology in live performance and abstract animation contexts. Elise was Associate Lecturer in Dance at Queensland University of Technology in 2019 and Choreographer-in-Residence with CIRCA Contemporary Circus in 2021.
