SymbioticA Friday Seminar with Choreographer Aimee Smith Other events...
"I am a choreographer and dance artist because of my interest in the capacity of art to makes sense of the world around us and the capacity of imagination to dream up the future. I hope, in some small way, that my art practice can contribute to the transformation of our world. This vision has led me to a constantly diversifying practice, across multiple disciplines and diverse communities. At SymbioticA I would like to share, through video and conversation, my recent body of works including Wintering, a work currently under development and inspired by an artist-led voyage to the High Arctic in 2010, The Futures Project, a work I recently created during a 2-month residency at Taipei Artist Village, and Accidental Monsters of Meaning, a durational installation performance that was presented at the WA Museum earlier this year."

Aimee Smith is a choreographer and dance artist inspired by the capacity of art as social specimen, art as beauty, art as social commentary, art as communicator, art as celebrator, and art as transformer. Since graduating from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2004, Aimee has been creating, performing and collaborating on contemporary dance works and installation environments, in both Australia and overseas. Her choreographic works include Accidental Monsters of Meaning (2011), Breakings (2010), Courageously Heroic Gallantry (2007), Refund Policy (2007), and Alpha.Beta. (2006), for which she has received numerous nominations and awards including Most Interesting Australian Artist in the 2007 and 2010 Dance Australia Critic’s Survey and the 2007 WA Dance Award for emerging artist. Alongside her choreographic practice Aimee works as a performer, teacher, community arts practitioner and is completing her masters in sustainability, constantly searching for ways it intersects with art.
