DRAMATURGY

With my diverse background in theatre, dance, media and interactive projects I am adept at dealing with the complexity of hybrid or new forms, unusual sites and the general public. I like looking at the big picture.

My dramaturgical roles on projects are responsive depending on the needs of the project, sometimes it is more of a mentor role, other times it is collaborator, and sometimes it is purely as an ‘outside eye’.

Previous dramaturgical work includes these projects with; Stompin (On Your Marks, Citizen, 6001-1 and Fully Grown), Luke George (Now Now Now and Not About Face), Brooke Stamp (Reverb), Martin Del Amo (Reverb and Slow Dances for Fast Times), Tamara Saulwick (Public and Alter ), Paula Lay (10,000 Small Deaths), Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey (Ensemble), Tanya Voges/Kellie O’Dempsey (Vestiges),  Liesel Zink (fifteen and The Stance), Jamie Lewis (Saltwater) and Nicola Gunn (Piece for Person and Ghettoblaster)

Highlights include;

In 2012, Liesel Zink’s fifteen was part of two ‘best of’ lists in Melbourne (Timeout) and Brisbane (Off Street Press) for the year in performance.

Also in 2012, Luke George’s critically acclaimed Now Now Now toured to Norway and the Netherlands after a sell out season in Dance Massive in 2011 and garnered 2 Green Room nominations.

Martin Del Amo’s critically acclaimed Slow Dances for Fast Times, presented by Carriageworks, Sydney, 2013.

Tamara Saulwick’s very positively reviewed PUBLIC as part of the Big West festival 2013. (‘Public explores the porous borders between public and private behaviour, and is the most sophisticated, not to mention enjoyable, work I’ve seen in this vein since Back to Back’s Small Metal Objects…Public is an invigorating and profoundly considered work, with a lightness and confidence that stays with you when it ends.’ Cameron Woodhead, The Age)
