Deakin University's Thinker in Residence program brings leading researchers from all over the world to work with our research groups to engage, develop and invigorate our research community. Next week the Deakin Motion.Lab welcomes Garry Stewart as Thinker in Residence. 


Garry Stewart is one of Australia's most innovative and successful choreographers. He is internationally acclaimed for his unique style and high-risk, high-tech collaborative works that explore philosophical and technological domains.

Garry will work with Deakin Motion.Lab Director Kim Vincs and the art/technology DML team to develop new ways of using motion capture, CG animation, 3D stereography and game engine technology for live dance performance as part of Vincs'  ARC Discovery project Building innovative capacity in Australian dance through new visualization technologies. Garry will also be in conversation across the creative arts, humanities and sciences at Deakin, and at the Centre for Intelligent Systems Research at the Waurn Ponds campus.

Dancers from Australian Dance Theatre will be at the Deakin Motion.Lab during October to develop a prototype for a new work.
