Dancehouse // Victoria Chiu’s ‘Floored’

Last year I had the chance to work with dancer Victoria Chiu during the development stage for her latest piece at Dancehouse.

Floored was Chiu’s exploration into comfort and complacency – our love of indulgence, our dependence on routines, our addiction to intricate mechanisms generating imprisoning comfort zones and safety nets.

Chimene in the Studio

I met with Chimene for a quick portrait session, and to photograph her at work on her latest dance piece.

She makes me want to use my body a lot more than I do.

REhearse @ Window 99

REhearse is an initiative by the good folk at Window99, a Brunswick st window gallery space. They’ve opened the window displays to create an exposed rehearsal space, with over a dozen performance artists using the space to create their latest pieces.

I was invited to photograph a session with Chimene and Elenor. They’re working on a dance piece which is 100% collaborative, drawing inspiration from a variety of emotions. Within the session there were no choreographed moves… they sat together asking questions of a personal (and very random) nature, then began creating movements expressing the moods they had put themselves in.
