December 2020 Space 28 Victorian College of Arts
WOW is a work evolved from the particular and challenging circumstances of its making. Working over Zoom, eventually in the studio, then finally in the theatre, we constructed a dance for and with the second-year dancers.
WOW brings these women together in their separateness, hinting at resonances of that time – memories that are confined to their hands and eyes, a restricted dimensionality, and a quiet intensity of focus that evokes a sort-of continual processing, or a repeated playing out of singular moments.
Choreography and direction: Alice Dixon and Caroline Meaden
Musical composition: Emah Fox
Performed by the second year Victorian College of Arts dance students, 2020.
