29 September – 9 October 2010
THE SHE SESSIONS is a performance about ‘women under construction’. Sally Smith, Trudy Radburn and Tirese Ballard turn up on site, tool bags bulging with dance, text and song, to hack into the archetypes of the Diva, the Bride & the Everywoman. Set against a backdrop of rubble and ruin, these established Melbourne artists present three new short solo works. Bare witness to the relentless melodrama of their ambitious self-renovation.
Meet 'The Diva' Sally Smith as she takes you on a visceral journey, harnessing the timeless 'power of the dance'. Discover the joys of your pubic symphysis and experience modern dance like you never thought
possible. This melodramatic, highly stylised dancing and singing icon, evokes another era, but crashlands into our contemporary world, with surprising results.
'Undone' is a comic tale of awkward delights. In a world where nothing is as it seems, Trudy Radburn explores the peculiar predicament of lounge room love.
'The Pane Of A Filthy Window' - A woman is awakening to the realisation that perhaps hope is nothing but a cumbersome obstacle. This morning's view is no different. She can no longer see the outside world, just the filthy pane in front of her. The situation is hopeless, she must take the next step. Just direct your feet... By Tirese Ballard, with musician Andrew O'Grady.
