“Alan Schacher is a contemporary performance maker and interdisciplinary artist. His particular focus is on spatial experience and the different meanings the body takes on in relation to diverse situations and surroundings, the built environment, and objects. An undercurrent of cultural landscapes and diasporic references, both imagined and inherited, form significant motifs in his work.
Schacher and Peter Fraser were in residence at Bundanon in 2013 to work in the Dorothy Porter Studio and in the landscape to develop situation-based scenarios, ideas with materials and props, and experiments with text and task.
Schacher was in residence with WeiZen Ho in 2007. Schacher exploref the theme of Nebachudnezzar as illustarted by Arthur Boyd and William Blake to develop the performance Nebachudnezzar’s Howl, for presentation at Taipei International Performance Art Festival, Taiwan, in August of the same year.”
