Alisdair Macindoe is an Australian dancer, sound designer and choreographer. His experience in these fields has taken his work to many countries world-wide, earning critical acclaim in the media and receiving local and international awards including five Greenroom awards, a Helpmann, and a New York Bessie. Notable collaborations include his work as a dancer for Lucy Guerin, Chunky Move, Antony Hamilton, Stephanie Lake and DanceNorth, and his work as a sound designer for Chunky Move, Antony Hamilton, STOMPIN and Dancenorth. His choreographic work includes commissions for Dancenorth, Lucy Guerin Inc, Next Wave, Performance Space, and STOMPIN.
Alisdairs’ unique multidisciplinary interests extend into the digital realm, and in 2018 he presented a major commission/exhibition NONCOMPETE at the Substation exploring electronics, creative coding and physical computing. As a multidisciplinary artist, whose work spans performance and technology, the intersection of humans and technology in both dance and music is one of his recurring interests.
Having founded his early career predominantly as a collaborator along side choreographers and directors, Alisdair's work as the lead creative voice has begun to consume most of his focus and this year sees him in the directors seat for the development of 5 new performance works: Reference Material to be presented as part of the Darebin Speakeasy program in 2020, Progress Report with co director Alison Currie through Vitalstatistix residency program, System Error with co director/performer Tamara Saulwick through Arts House residency program, A.I.D. an investigation into audible dance manuscripts through his Resident Directorship with Lucy Guerin Inc at WXYZ studios and a new work for the graduating class of VCA dance.
