There Is One More System by Dean-Ryan Lincoln
Systems of trauma – it is a timeless, liminal space where you return again and again. You keep responding to the disaster long after it has subsidised. The collapse, the complexity, the joy, the anguish, the pleasure.
Team: Dean-Ryan Lincoln
Performed Wednesday and Friday
Flower and Skin by Giorgia Schijf

Team: Giorgia Schijf

I Want To Do That by Jen Jamieson
A public dance class for a non-dancer. A rollercoaster of shame and fear, physical stumbling and humiliation, and a shared love of dance.
Team: Jen Jamieson, Sofie Burgoyne, Jacob Lehrer
Performed Thursday and Friday
Girl and a Microphone by Isabella Stone
Amplification and suffocation. A chance to say something but not sure what to say, how to say it or who’s listening. Power – take over my body and an alter ego illuminates the space behind the stand. It’s all a performance but for your or for me, I’m not sure.
Team: Isabella Stone, Emma Fishwick
Performed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday

The Presence of Wool by Symantha Parr
An atmospheric sound score sets the stage for spectral woollen mill workers, with machine like, repetitive movements. These lost souls subsequently create ghostly cocoon shapes with languid progress contrasted with wild abandonment.
Team: Symantha Parr, Rita Bush, Talitha Maslin, James Gentle
Performed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
The Farm by Tahlia Russell
Sound, movement, imagery, and stillness. Exploring the connection between biorhythms to a state of consciousness.
