The DARKROOM


A ten minute dance/projection piece in BODYTORQUE with the Australian Ballet, Sydney Theatre, May 2007.
Choreographer, Narelle Benjamin and myself use our formula screen design - Black Scrim downstage with high contrast black and white 'ghosted' objects with a background on White Cyc. 7 weeks of time lapse video of 4 different roses growing and dying at the beginning of winter. They flower in a derelict room, three dancers from the ballet company articulate a man's early death and his surrealist signals from the afterlife. Music: 'Drive By' - The Necks.

INVISIBILITY PROJECT


Apart from me reversing the polarity on electrical devices, the laptop has done some fast rendering through a showing of Nargun and the Stars (Erth) at Carriageworks and a development of "Miss and Miss Elder" with Julie-Anne Long. In M + M Elder, Julie-Anne goes on a long shopping expedition with her projected sister to Westfield Eastgardens. There these elderly sisters have enjoyable hallucinations but it leads one to question whether her sister's projectionism means she is a figment of the imagination. It is a project looking at lonliness and invisibility of old people in a busy world.
PERFORMANCE SPACE @ Carriageworks 9-13th October 2007.
