The following video illustrates my interest in facilitating the viewer, the audience, to be the ‘incidental’ performer, well actually, they are the star performers in this iteration.
I see my fascination with the movement and placement of objects in space, a direct extension of my dance, my movement, the projection of experience and intent. The placement of the objects provides room for the essence of the work to emerge. The choreography is determined by the interaction of the viewers with the objects and with each other.
The above work was a collaboration with Australian dance artist, Rachel Arianne Ogle. The work resulted from a masterclass with Joao Fiadeiro on his Composition in Real Time method. The even was produced by Strut Dance, Western Australia.

The Watering Hole invited viewers to one by one traverse approx 400 metres across a dry lake bed to taste water that we had collected via a condensation unit (The Watering Hole) that we had constructed with assistance of other artists. To complete the circle, the viewers were then invited to assist in filling the Hole.
Time Place Space Nomad was produced by Arts House, Victoria, and Performance Space, Sydney.
