Lois Taylor, Gemma Kempthorne and Sarah Fairhall are looking for a strong and engaging male dancer/physical performer to co-create and perform ACE funded Physical Postcards touring work.
We explore sending and receiving danced messages from the body. The performance brings the audience into our process of making Physical Postcards through playful and informal conversations, choreographed work and in the moment improvised responses to the audiences writing.

We are looking for a strong performer and collaborative individual to co-create the work, who is interested in investing in it for current and future performance opportunities. You will need to enjoy and be confident in exploring and expressing your ideas, in movement and text and be playful and inventive. Really positive skills are Improvisation, contact, voice work, creative writing, dance/movement technical or/an originality.
In 2015/16 ACE funded us to develop a digital project called Physical Postcards. We explored 1 minute danced messages captured on film. We developed this in a range of professional and community contexts. As a part of the project, we held 6 performative sharings of our creative process and film outcomes. We discovered some exciting things that engaged the audience, that we want to build on to create live performance work for rural touring. The website is for that project only. It will be updated as we develop the new work.
“Wow, what a beautiful project. A real privilege to witness this life. Thank you for a wonderful evening. I felt totally absorbed by the whole spirit of the project. Very personal, authentic, honest, beautiful, moving and real.”
